Waco gets stoned

Well it was bound to happen. David Koresh and his Branch Davidians cult, and the FBI debacle that went with it was bound to get the big screen treatment eventually, I am just amazed it has taken this long to do.
Well the film is going ahead with Michael McNulty who made the documentary '
Waco: The Rules of Engagement' (trailer below) on hand for his experience. Also interesting is that investigative journalist, Lee Hibbard has written the script.
There is no director yet, but the most interesting thing is the cast.

Kurt Russell, Adrian Brody and:

Yes, that is Sharon Stone. They have all signed on to the film which starts shooting in the fall.

Could this be a comeback vehicle for all three, or will it end up being a respected, yet unrewarding film? The subject is a great one though and it has all the making of a very juicy (and accurate) bit of film making.
