    No, it's not the 1st of April yet.

    For once, I'm virtually speechless.

    With a title like that, I thought we were going to be talking 70s porn here...

    Plus it's seems to be kind of risky to put a movie into post-production while the subject of the movie is still making headlines.

    What if something major happens during those months between wrapping up filming and the release prior to Bush leaving office? The movie immediately becomes obsolete...

    Apparently, a script is doing the rounds for financing. From the sound of it, I'm assuming it'll cover the early part of his presidency. I dunno, the whole idea seems really odd.

    But there you go. Who said irony was dead?

    Much like his administration, it will be a mix of all 3.

    Like the last seven years, probably a bit of each.

    People are already calling it biased before we've heard anything about it simply because Stone is directing. As if anyone who still supports this administration isn't biased. Not that it won't be, and I probably won't want to watch it, but from what I've heard it'll at least be... interesting. Considering the fact that his fans won't want to watch it, and the rest of us wouldn't want to relive anything about him, especially after he's gone, like the rest of the movies like this, I doubt it'll do well. I hear the echoes of "too soon" already.
