Great Satan Pictures Presents..

Sometimes kissing the tush of a meglomaniacal tyrant will get you a movie about said meglomaniacal tyrant. Other times, it will only get you chapped lips.

Just ask Oliver Stone.

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has rejected a proposal by controversial American movie director Oliver Stone to make a film about him because Stone is part the “Great Satan” cultural establishment.

“I sent a negative answer by Ahmadinejad to Oliver Stone,” the media adviser to the president was quoted as saying.

“It is right that this person is considered part of the opposition in the US, but opposition in the US is a part of the Great Satan.”

Stone’s publicist in New York said the Oscar-winning director had not been formally notified by Iran that his proposal to make a documentary about Ahmadinejad had been turned down. But in a statement, Stone said he wished the Iranian people well.

“I have been called a lot of things, but never a Great Satan,” Stone said in the statement. “I wish the Iranian people well, and only hope their experience with an inept, rigid ideologue president goes better than ours.”

As does their experience with inept, morally bankrupt film directors.
