Savages To Be Stone’s Next Film

Oliver Stone300Oliver Stone is looking to make Savages, an adaptation of a novel by Don Winslow, his next film, and is close to a distribution deal which would allow him to get started.

Rumoured to star in the movie are Kick Ass star Aaron Johnson and Friday Night Lights and X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s Taylor Kitsch.

Savages is the story of two drug dealers, Ben and Chon, that run a drugs operation Laguna Beach, but when the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in on their turf and won’t take no for an answer. When they refuse to cooperate, the cartel kidknap Ophelia, their close friend. The abduction sets off a series of negotiations and twists which we won’t divulge because we don’t want to ruin the film – or the book.
