By His Enemies Shall You Know Him?

According to the DPA, Oliver Stone‘s latest film project has been torpedoed. Is it because the callow, corporate Hollywood establishment can’t deal with the radical truth that Stone is laying down? Um, not quite:

Iran has rejected a request by United States filmmaker Oliver Stone to make a film about President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the website of the news network Press TV reported on Sunday.

Ahmadinejad’s media advisor, Mehdi Kalhor, said that Stone had requested to make a film about Ahmadinejad which was however rejected by the president.

“We have already seen his documentaries – even though Stone is considered a member of the opposition group in the US, it is still part of the Great Satan,” he said.

Maybe now that’s he’s no longer being pestered by Oliver Stone, President Ahmadinejad will be able to turn his attention back to updating that blog he started. Posts have been pretty thin, there, Mahmoud.
