George W. Bush’s early years will soon be coming to a theater near you, courtesy of Oliver Stone.

Variety reports that Stone’s recently rechristened Bush biopic W — formerly known as Bush — has assembled its starring cast. Are you ready to meet your new/old First Family?

In the role of George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st President of the United States…James Cromwell!

As his devoted wife, Barbara, it’s Ellen Burstyn!

Playing the elder Bushes’ daughter-in-law, Laura, say hello to none other than Elizabeth Banks!

And last but not least, in the role of President George W. Bush, Josh Brolin! Give him a round of applause, ladies and gentlemen!

According to Variety, Stone’s W will begin filming in Shreveport, LA, at the end of April; Stone will direct from a script by Stanley Weiser, and the movie will take a look at “the formative years” of our current Commander-in-Chief.
