Oliver Stone’s “W” Casting Nearly Complete

April 6, 2008 at 11:38 pm Leave a comment

Regardless of what your political leanings are, or what you may think of Oliver Stone, this should be one very interesting movie.

I, for one, can’t wait to see this. Stone doesn’t make any secret of his opinions on the Iraq War or this administration, which makes me wonder whether he can actually “draw a fair-minded portrait”. However, I was fairly impressed with his handling of “World Trade Center” and how he didn’t politicize it at all, he focused on the characters and the events of the moment and not what caused them or what happened afterward. Doing otherwise would, in my opinion, do a disservice to the true story.

So, based on that, I’m willing to give Stone the benefit of the doubt and will most likely be in the theatre on opening day.

Oliver Stone has found the actress to play Condoleezza Rice
in “W,” his upcoming movie about President George W. Bush.
Thandie Newton is in final negotiations to star as the National
Security Advisor-turned-Secretary of State.
Stone has said he wants to draw a fair-minded portrait of
the polarizing figure. Sources familiar with the script say
Bush is depicted as an easily distracted figure predisposed to
personal agendas, though they say the script occasionally shows
a more sympathetic side.

Josh Brolin, James Cromwell, Elizabeth Banks and Ellen Burstyn
had previously been cast as George W., George Sr., Laura and
Barbara Bush
, respectively.

Meanwhile, Ioan Gruffudd is in final talks to play former
British prime minister Tony Blair
