I didn't really know what picture to use for this post. You see, Josh Brolin is set to play Geroge W. Bush in an Oliver Stone film, called Bush, currently in pre-production. I didn't want to use that more popular No Country For Old Men pic (used here).
So I'm thinking Crawford, Texas...horses, and "that'll do."
But word is that Brolin is set to play the president in the 2009 Stone release. I'm not really sure what time period "Bush" will focus on, who will Laura, Condi, Bush 41, and so forth, but I will be curious to see who gets cast.
Oliver Stone is not afraid these days to make films on "modern history" (or should I say "current events"). Oliver Stone is credited with one of the very first 9/11 dramatizations with World Trade Center released August 2006.
After recently catching up some Stone films, I'm glad to see Oliver Stone tackling projects like this. I loved Nixon specifically, and am interested to see what a G.W. Bush film would be like from the mind of Stone (and the pen of Stanley Weiser, writer of Wall Street and TV projects like the Rudy Giuliani Story).
Any predictions in terms of story, time period, or casting?
Is it too early to do a feature length dramatic bio-pic of our current President? It worked for The Queen can it work for this?
