The article presents information on the profile of Oliver Stone, the director of the movie "Alexander." It somehow seems appropriate that the crew that worked on Oliver Stone's latest film, "Alexander," comprised professionals from many countries after all, the youthful subject of the film conquered much of the known world in the fourth century B.C. and established an empire that stretched from the Mediterranean to India. Stone is no stranger to historical dramas: he directed "JFK," "Nixon," "Salvador," and his remarkable Vietnam trilogy"Platoon," "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Heaven and Earth." But "Alexander" marks the director's first foray outside of the modern era, and he's never made a film of such size and scope before "Alexander" cost about $150 million to make, and it involved the proverbial cast of thousands. The ancient epic story got the modern epic treatment.
