Stone has first lady for Bush biopic
EmptyElizabeth Banks is going from the world of adult films to the White House.
The actress, who recently wrapped shooting Kevin Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," is in final negotiations to portray Laura Bush in "W," Oliver Stone's biopic on the life and presidency of George W. Bush.
Josh Brolin already is on board to play Bush in the biopic, which begins shooting in late April in Shreveport, La.
Stone wrote the screenplay with his "Wall Street" co-writer Stanley Weiser.
Moritz Borman, who worked with Stone on "World Trade Center" and "Alexander," is producing, as is Jon Kilik.
Beverly Hills-based QED International is financing and handling sales.
Banks, repped by UTA and Untitled, next appears opposite Eddie Murphy in the comedy "Meet Dave" and then opposite Aaron Eckhart in "Meet Bill."
