Stone's Bush

Director Oliver Stone has set his sights on making a film about the life of US President George W. Bush. He has also attached Josh Brolin (GRINDHOUSE) to play him. Now, that sounds like sound casting to me, but I think in their haste they might have overlooked someone. He... Well, have a look for yourself:

I know who I'd go with, but I guess that's why I don't have a job in Hollywood. Oh well, Brolin's good too, I guess. Particularly when his wife's running out on him with Fergie, or finding a satchel fulll o' muuuney.

Stone mentioned that in spite of his previous comments on the President, he didn't intend for the film to be a polemic; "But if 'Nixon' was a symphony, this is more like a chamber piece, and not as dark in tone. People have turned my political ideas into a cliche, but that is superficial. I'm a dramatist who is interested in people, and I have empathy for Bush as a human being, much the same as I did for Castro, Nixon, Jim Morrison, Jim Garrison and Alexander the Great." I in turn will believe this when I see it. The film is written by Stanley Weiser and is titled simply, BUSH. It was between that, APPRECIFICATED, and MISUNDERESTIMICATED, the latter two being among the President's favourite words.
Extra Tidbit: Stone had the plug pulled on his project PINKVILLE last year, but hopes to come back to it at some point in the future.
