Bush, Stone has compared W. to The Queen and Nixon. The screenplay was written pre-strike by Stanley Weiser, who had co-wrote Wall Street with Stone. Weiser and Stone read 17 books as part of their research for the script. W. began filming late last month in Shreveport, Louisiana. Friday it was announced that Lionsgate will release the film nationwide on October 17th 2008, just in time for the presidential election in November 2008.
