Oliver Stone is writing his memoirs

This should make interesting reading: Oliver Stone has signed a deal to publish his memoirs.

The book is due to released in autumn 2020 and will chronicle his early years — before he won his first Academy Award at age 32 for writing the Midnight Express script — including his time as an infantry soldier in Vietnam, as well his struggles in Hollywood to overcome the “overindulgences borne of youthful success and the battles to finance, shoot, and complete an unprecedented movie such as Platoon.”

“The last few years have afforded me time to reassess a life that was sometimes lived at warp speed,” said Stone. “Past seventy, every memory, pleasant or not, is even more cherished.”

Stone’s most acclaimed projects JFK, Natural Born Killers, Scarface, Wall Street, and Born on the Fourth of July. He has been nominated for 11 Oscars, winning three, including two for Best Director.
