Michael Lindell, the millionaire inventor and CEO of MyPillow, has invested $1 million into a new film from the makers of "God's Not Dead," and says he plans to spend more of his estimated $300 million fortune on projects that fit his conservative message.

"I don't get into things for the money; I get into them if the message is right," Lindell, a supporter of President Donald Trump who is recognized through his infomercials and his advertising on Fox News, told The Hollywood Reporter.

Lindell has invested $1 million into the movie "Unplanned," which criticizes Planned Parenthood. He's also got a cameo in the movie, where he is shown bulldozing one of the agency's clinics to make room for the home of an anti-abortion group.

Lindell also helped fund  a Christian comedy, "Church People," which stars Stephen Baldwin and is in post-production. He has a cameo in that movie, but said it was difficult as he has a "spirit of unworthiness so I had to get over my shyness."

The MyPillow magnate came under fire after refusing to pull his advertising from Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" after host Laura Ingraham insulted a survivor of the Parkland, Fla. shootings.

Lindell, a former cocaine and alcohol addict, stood near Trump last month when the president signed a bill targeting opioid addiction.

"I met Donald Trump before he was president and I didn't know a thing about politics," said Lindell, who is preparing for a movie based on his own life story. "I walked out of his office thinking there was no better man in this world that I would like to be my president."
