Veteran director Oliver Stone is preparing to re-enlist for Vietnam, it was reported yesterday.

Stone, who won best-director Oscars for his Vietnam War-related dramas Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July, is planning a new film about the investigation into the 1968 My Lai massacre, Daily Variety reported.

The 60-year-old director is close to sealing a deal with United Artists to finance the film, titled Pinkville, while Bruce Willis has been confirmed to play the army chief who led the investigation.

Up to 500 Vietnamese civilians were killed by U.S. troops in the My Lai massacre.
