OLIVER STONE TO DIRECT JOSH BROLIN AS GEORGE W. BUSH!!!! 


Oliver Stone, the controversial director who's made some searing films, has set his sights on his next directing project, "Bush," a film focusing on the life and presidency of George W. Bush, and attached Josh Brolin to play the title role.

The script is from his "Wall Street" co-writer Stanley Weiser.

Stone said he's not looking to make an anti-Bush film. His goal is to use seminal events in Bush's life to explain how he came to power, using a structure comparable to "The Queen."

Why did Stone choose Brolin to play the president? The director said, "Josh is actually better looking than Bush but has the same drive and charisma that Americans identify with Bush, who has some of that old-time movie-star swagger."

This is quite intriguing! I would love to see Stone humanize Bush, maybe make him a tad likeable and believable!
