Director Oliver Stone has announced plans to make a movie about President George W. Bush and has cast Josh Brolin in the lead.

"Bush" is set for production in April and will hit theaters in November - right at the moment that a new leader takes the White House.

Stone told Daily Variety that he'll make "a fair, true portrait" of Bush and will focus on his youth, his conversion to Christianity and his relationship with his dad, President George H. W. Bush.

"It will contain surprises for Bush supporters and his detractors," said Stone.

Brolin "has the same drive and charisma that Americans identify with Bush, who has some of that old-time movie-star swagger," said Stone.
