CNN has posted an exclusive clip from the up and coming Oliver Stone's biopic project focusing on the first meeting between Bush and his wife.
Oliver Stone's latest biopic project "W" has gone forward with its promo as CNN brings forth a brand new clip from the film. Highlighting one of the memorable moments in George W. Bush's life before his presidency, the video focuses on the first meeting between the future 43rd U.S. president and Laura Welch, a Democrat who later becomes known as the First Lady Laura Bush.
Commenting on the two's first encounter, Stone shared to CNN about the unlikely couple. "Even though he was a partying Republican candidate for Congress, and she was a Democratic librarian, there was something bigger between them that lasted," he said. "Their meeting at the barbecue has been documented by family friends in numerous books. For them, it was the best thing that ever came out of a Texas barbecue."
Chronicling the life and presidency of one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory, "W" list a band of A-list stars, including Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Banks, Ioan Gruffudd and Thandie Newton, as the cast ensemble. The Lionsgate's film produced by Moritz Borman, Jon Kilik and Bill Block will be released on October 17.
