You’ve seen the trailer for Oliver Stone‘s George W. Bush biopic “W“, now see the poster featuring a shot of Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) as the current US President getting ready to deliver a speech.
Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. “W” takes viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush’s decision to invade Iraq.
The film that is due out in theatres on October 17th stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Banks, Richard Dreyfuss, James Cromwell, Ellen Burstyn, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Scott Glenn, Ioan Gruffudd, and Jesse Bradford. [Ain’t It Cool News]
