Oliver Stone directing The Power Broker movieOct 27 2011

Oliver Stone is set to direct a movie for HBO based on Robert Caro's biography of Robert Moses, The Power Broker.

Moses, who at one time was dubbed the city's "master builder,' was among the most powerful men in 20th century urban planning and politics, having influenced New York's infrastructure as much as any other individual.

The story says it'll be a movie, but how are they going to cram the 1344 pages of The Power Broker into 120 minutes? It'll be a multi-parter, surely. (via ★al)
