Oliver Stone Preps My Lai Movie
Posted on Aug 29, 2007
Bruce Willis will star in an Oliver Stone film about the My Lai massacre, perhaps the most infamous atrocity to emerge from the Vietnam War. In other Stone news, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says he has “no objection, generally speaking,” to the director’s rumored desire to make a biopic about him but that Stone would need to “let me know what are the frameworks.”
Actor Bruce Willis has signed up to star in director Oliver Stone’s next film, which will be based on the 1968 My Lai massacre in Vietnam.
Willis plays a real-life army general who investigated the murder of hundreds of Vietnamese villagers by US soldiers.
Stone, 60, is said to be closing a deal with Hollywood film studio United Artists, who will finance the project.
