"W" - 2008's Sleeper?

Man, this is really shaping up to be a must see film for 2008!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Dreyfuss is in final negotiations to play Vice President Dick Cheney in Oliver Stone's upcoming George W Bush pic, simply titled, W.

I previously posted a blog entry about the film over HERE and provided a glimpse of what some of the cast will look like in full make-up, over HERE.

Dreyfuss is yet another interesting casting selection by Stone - adding to an already brow-raising potpourri of stars attached to the film, including, Josh Brolin as George W, Elizabeth Banks as Laura, Thandie Newton (where has she been) as Condoleezza Rice, and Jeffrey Wright as Colin Powell.

Given the casting, as well as all I've read about Stone's possible caustic yet comical take on George W, I can't help but be giddy about what the end product is going to look, sound and feel like!

Looking forward to its fall release!
