A couple new items about Oliver Stone’s George W. Bush biopic W surfaced today. The main one, of course, is the Entertainment Weekly cover story, which notes that the film starts shooting next week, no one has been cast as Dick Cheney yet, and the script has been rewritten at least twice since an earlier version was leaked to the press around April Fool’s Day; for more on that, see the reactions to that version of the script that were posted last month by ABC News, Slate, the Hollywood Reporter and Jeffrey Wells. Meanwhile, Variety reports that Lionsgate has acquired distribution rights and plans to release the film October 17 — three weeks before election day. Anyone want to guess what effect this movie will have at the polls, if any?
