Stone In Talks For Helter Skelter

oliverstone - Stone In Talks For Helter SkelterOliver Stone hasn’t been on much of a winning streak lately, but today brings us rumblings of a project that might just suit the director’s frenzied style.

Variety says Stone has been in talks with Vincent Bugliosi, prosecuting attorney and author of Helter Skelter, to bring the writer’s chronicle of the Manson Family murder spree to the big screen. While the trade doesn’t seem thrilled with the prospect of Stone chronicling the murder of five people during the summer of 1969, the grim subject matter could be the topic of an interesting film a la David Fincher’s Zodiac.
