Oliver Stone's next film, the Vietnam set drama PINKVILLE, is really taking shape. Joining Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum are Woody Harrelson and Michael Pena, two actors who have worked with Stone in the past (NATURAL BORN KILLERS and WORLD TRADE CENTER respectively). It's also been confirmed that long-time collaborator Robert Richardson will be handling the cinematography duties. Richardson has shot numerous films for Stone, including NATURAL BORN KILLERS, JFK, NIXON, and BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the film is a "mystery drama based on the infamous 1968 My Lai Massacre, in which upward of 500 people -- mostly women, children and the elderly -- were killed by U.S. soldiers. The massacre ended up being a turning point in the war."

Sounds like a natural fit for the Vietnam, American-history obsessed filmmaker. Should be powerful stuff.
