Stone takes on some Savages

Oliver Stone is setting his sights on crime once again as he takes on the novel adaptation of Savages, working on the feature as producer, reports Deadline Hollywood. Written by Don Winslow, the story is about young, independent Laguna Beach-based marijuana kingpins are blackmailed into working for the Baja Cartel after one of their threesome is kidnapped.

Stone is striking on the big screen once again with grabbing a topic that’s very hot at the moment. The Mexican drug cartel has been one of the near permanent parts of the news for those cities in the States that straddle the Mexico border, having to deal with random shootings or kidnappings that tend to result in the death of persons from either side in an apparent territory war that has no end in sight at the moment.

Don Winslow and Stone will work together with making a big screen adaptation of the novel, but no word yet of who could possibly hover around this picture to act as director. Stone is in the middle of post-production on Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps which is poised to be released on April 23rd of this year.

I’ve been in love with film ever since I was a kid. The time, effort and passion that runs through a majority most film is something that’s always attracted me to this field. What ended up happening with my big appetite for all things going on in the industry turned from random blurbs on Facebook to an unexpected but fun job. College student by day, movie news writer by early morning…or any time in the day and night when more news arrives. Working towards my bachelor’s degree in film, what a surprise. I do other things too, like draw, write stories, maintain a social life and feed my pet dragon Lockheed. If you want to know more about me, hunt me down and just ask.
