Stone, determined to release the movie before his protagonist moves out of the White House, is hoping for an October release date.
Fun trivia from the article: Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. will have a conversation where they will discuss both the Texas Rangers and Saddam Hussein.
Worth noting: The movie poster for the film suggests the title is meant to be pronounced "dubya" and that, brace yourself, Stone may not be shooting a flattering portrayal of the former Texas governor's life. (Though the article says the filmmakers "believe they are crafting a biography so honest that loyal Republicans and the Bushes themselves might see it.")
Also handy: this slideshow of the actors playing the key parts (including
James Josh Brolin, shown left, made-up to look like Bush.).
Missing from the slideshow: a mug of Toby Jones (shown right) who will play Karl Rove.
