It looks like Oliver Stone enjoys being in the company of presidents.
The helmer is following up his Bush biopic "W." with a documentary
about Venezuela's controversial President Hugo Chavez.

Stone has been working on the untitled doc for six months and is hoping to have it ready for next year.

"It's about Chavez and the South American revolution," Stone told Daily Variety in a reference to the wave of leftist pols elected to office in Latin America in recent years.

Stone
was with Chavez in February during the dramatic rescue of hostages that
Chavez helped to broker from the militant Columbian FARC group. The doc
will not focus on the rescue but rather the opposition Chavez has faced
at home and abroad, especially from the Bush administration, which has
been vocal in its distaste for the populist socialism espoused by
Venezuela's president.
