Award-winning director Oliver Stone revealed via Twitter that he is no longer involving in directing and writing a biopic about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Stone tweeted the news on Friday (January 17th) and said producers “won’t go with it.” https://twitter.com/TheOliverStone/status/424286222408617985 "The script dealt with issues of adultery, conflicts within the movement, and King's spiritual transformation into a higher, more radical being," Stone explained. "I'm told the estate and the 'respectable' black community that guard King's reputation won't approve it," he added. "They suffocate the man and the truth." https://twitter.com/TheOliverStone/status/424292714910187520 Two other biopic projects involving Jamie Foxx (Dreamworks/Warner Bros.) and Forest Whitaker, are still thought to be in production. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
