Film director Oliver Stone announced that he will no longer be helming a highly anticipated biopic on the life of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. because he wasn’t allowed to show the iconic Civil Rights leader’s flaws.

Dreamworks announced last fall that they were bringing King’s life to the big screen. Jamie Foxx has been tapped to portray King and Steven Spielberg signed on to produce.

Apparently, even all that star power wasn’t enough for the family of the assassinated leader, who allegedly didn’t like the story that Stone was trying to tell.
