For many, George W. Bush’s reign of terror term can’t come to an end soon enough. But before he leaves office, Director Oliver Stone gives us one more look at the country’s abysmal Commander-in-Chief with his upcoming biopic, “W.”

For the past eight years, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. Stone brings the life of our 43rd President to the big screen taking viewers through Bush’s eventful life — his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to his decision to invade Iraq.

Stone promises that his film won’t be a Bush bashing story, but will explain how he came to power, using a structure comparable to The Queen. “The impact of George W. Bush’s presidency will be felt for many years to come,” says Stone. “Despite a meteoric, almost illogical rise to power, and a tremendous influence on the world, we don’t really know much about Mr. Bush beyond the controlled images we’ve been allowed to see on TV. This movie’s taking a bold stab at looking behind that curtain.

The film stars Josh Brolin as George W. Bush, Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, James Cromwell as George Herbert Walker Bush, Ellen Burstyn as Barbara Bush, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice, Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell, Scott Glenn as Donald Rumsfeld, and Ioan Gruffud as Tony Blair.

This “love letter” to the President and his legacy, “W.” will be in theaters on October 17.
