Bush to get "Stoned"

As noted on the Drudge Report, Oliver Stone is planning a movie on the life of the current President Bush. Although he's known for his left minded politics, Stone's Nixon (one of my favorite movies) was quite sympathetic.

Stone notes:

"... 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. It will contain surprises for Bush supporters and his detractors."
And who will don the cowboy boots and power ties? Josh Brolin is reportedly attached.
