Prosecution of Bush movie

Leave it Canucks to take over a movie that wasn't seeing the light of day in the U.S. Or so says Windsor film producer Jim Shaban. Shaban's NAFTC Studios got the rights to distribute controversial author Vincent Bugliosi's The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. Shaban met with the famed prosecutor - who handled the Charles Manson trial and wrote the best-selling Outrage! about the O.J. Simpson case - after becoming aware of the "intense media black-out" south of the border of both the book and film. He says mainstream media "actively blocked" the production. In it Bugliosi uses his courtroom skills to lay out a point-by-point evidentiary case for why the former president should be hauled before the courts for invading Iraq in 2003. "I realized this project would never get the attention it deserves if it remained in the U.S.," Shaban says. The film, expected to be released in February, has a trailer produced locally in Leamington. Shaban has huge hopes for creating a film studio (see post below) in fields along Hwy. 401. He says it was "no small feat" to acquire the film rights. "It's one of the projects to kick start my company," he says. "Believe it or not, Ron, it opens doors for me in Hollywood. Controversial stuff works." The film is directed by David J. Burke, produced by Kip and Kern Konwiser, and executive producer is Peter Miller. Bugliosi and GWB LLC formed a production company to make it. http://www.prosecutionofbushmovie.com/
