Oliver Stone On The Hunt For “Savages”

Oliver Stone has apparently locked down a deal to produce and direct “Savages” according to Deadline Hollywood Daily.

Based on the Don Winslow’s upcoming novel, the story follows a pair of Laguna Beach friends who share both a thriving marijuana business and a girlfriend.

When a Mexican drug cartel kidnaps the girlfriend, they agree to pay the ransom but at the same time plan a way to both get her back and get revenge.

Stone and Winslow will work together on the screenplay with Stone apparently set to make this his next film after next month’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”.
