Oliver Stone has found his leading/First Lady. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Banks has been cast as First Lady Laura Bush in the Oliver Stone biopic W.
Josh Brolin has already signed on to play President George W. Bush in this film about his presidency. Stone will direct and he wrote the script with Stanley Weiser, who co-wrote Stone's Wall Street.
Banks has just wrapped shooting on Kevin Smith's latest film Zack & Miri Make a Porno and will be seen later this year in Eddie Murphy's Meet Dave and Aaron Eckhart's Meet Bill.
Production on W is scheduled to begin in late April in Shreveport, Louisiana.
