That’s the word from Joe Wilson fan and director of the upcoming Valerie Plame biopic, Doug Liman. The film has the ironic working title Nothing but the Truth. For those interested in the real story, Sweetness and Light has a nice backgrounder.
Meanwhile, here’s what Liman had to say in a recent interview about the film:
“If you’ve met Joe, he’s a really strong guy. I’ve never met an actor stronger than Russell Crowe.” Liman goes on to say: “It’s the Valerie Plame story, but you wouldn’t know it when Joe’s around. I met with [Russell] for Bourne Identity, and I was terrified. The whole time I was in the room with him I was just scared of him. This is a scary dude! And Joe is kind of like that.”
So he’s a narcissistic liar and a scary dude. I’m sure they’ll get all that in the film.
And in case you’re wondering, yes this is a current news item.
