For those of you who treat every botched RNC convention-location mention like a cigarette stubbed out in St. Paul’s collective palm, here’s the latest to yelp about: an Ad Age article on Oliver Stone’s Bush II biopic “W.” that puts the convention in Minneapolis.
Sure, Ad Age displays the sort of geographic precision the Bush administration showed with WMDs, but the piece is actually a pretty interesting read. The film’s studio, Lionsgate Films, will offer a “double-barreled blast of outdoor advertising” featuring both iconic and befuddled Bushes.
The story takes great pains to portray Stone’s flick as something less than a polemic, noting that principal player Josh Brolin passed on the script twice until getting a non-crusading script.
Betting starts now on which billboard pops up by Xcel. (Hat tip to M.S.)
