Watch the first teaser for Oliver Stone’s George W. Bush biopic.

You’re a Bush. Act like one! That’s the topic of the latest Oliver Stone’s biopic ‘W’. The film’s first trailer is now online and Stone seems to be concerned with how this all drinking, all gambling man became President of the United States.


W. tells the life story of our 43rd President, George W. Bush, and his rise to power and prominence. Oliver Stone (Wall Street, JFK, Nixon, Alexander) is helming the project with a screenplay written by Stanley Weiser (Project X, Wall Street).


The cast includes Josh Brolin (President Bush), Elizabeth Banks (First Lady Laura Bush), Richard Dreyfuss (Dick Cheney), Thandie Newton (Condoleezza Rice) and Scott Glenn (Donald Rumsfeld).


The film has no confirmed Irish release date, but will be released in the States on October 17th (just before the election).
