Oliver Stone has hinted that he'd like to make another JFK film.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker directed the 1991 political thriller starring Kevin Costner, about the assassination of the US president.

Asked if he would like to make an epilogue to JFK, two decades after he made the film, he said: "I would be intrigued by that, yes."

He said of marking the 50th anniversary of JFK's death in 1963: "We are releasing a limited release (of the JFK film), in three cities on November 6; Washington, New York and LA.

"The networks are going to release big time the 50th anniversary of the assassination with the usual, conventional explanation."

Stone said of the possibility of making a lighter film, like a romantic comedy: "I don't know that I could do one. I have a sense of humour, but I don't know. We'll see what happens."

He said his recent project, Oliver Stone's The Untold History Of The United States, was targeted at teenagers.

"I kind of positioned it so my 17-year-old daughter could understand it, and she could. You may not get it all, but you want to go back. That's the idea."

:: Oliver Stone's Untold History Of The United States is out on DVD.
