I must say I think we've got awesome director and very interesting story that needs to be told. I wonder if Bush will attend the premier?NEW YORK - Like a bill being rapidly pushed through legislation, Oliver Stone?s film about President George W. Bush is expected to begin shooting within a month with a goal toward being released before the president leaves office next January.
A person close to the film, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because plans were still being formalized, said Stone?s ?W.? will begin filming in late April in Shreveport, Louisiana. The Academy Award-winning director only began shopping his script for financing in January, but has quickly captured the interest of investors and Hollywood.
Stone has said that the film, which will focus on the life and presidency of Bush, won?t be an anti-Bush polemic, but, as he told Daily Variety, ?a fair, true portrait of the man. How did Bush go from being an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world??
