Oliver Stone sets his sights on Bush
Posted: 02:46 PM ET
Actor Josh Brolin has reportedly been tapped to play President Bush.
(CNN) — He's tackled the assassination of John F. Kennedy and tumultuous presidency of Richard Nixon. Now Hollywood director Oliver Stone is preparing to take an in depth look at how President Bush came to power.
According to Daily Variety, Stone is in the process of developing a script about the current president that he hopes will hit theatres in time for the general election next fall.
And he's tapped Josh Brolin — most recently of "No Country for Old Men" to play the commander in chief.
Calls to Stone's publicist and Brolin's agent have not yet been returned.
Variety reports the script was written by Stanly Weiser (who wrote 1981's “Wall Street”) and will be produced by Moritz Bormnan — the producer of 2006's World Trade Center.
Stone told Variety that the film will focus on how Bush was able to win the White House, and though he has been a sharp critic of the Bush administration's policy in Iraq, Stone said the movie would be a "true portrait" of the 43rd president.
"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," Stone said.
"I want a fair, true portrait of the man. How did Bush go from an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world? It's like Frank Capra territory on one hand, but I'll also cover the demons in his private life, his bouts with his dad and his conversion to Christianity, which explains a lot of where he is coming from. It includes his belief that God personally chose him to be president of the United States, and his coming into his own with the stunning, preemptive attack on Iraq," he added.
Stone acknowledged Brolin and Bush do not bear too much resemblance, but he said the two share the same "drive and charisma."
"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," he said.
