Oliver Stone is an award winning director and screenwriter who is known for films such as Scarface, Wall Street, Platoon, Natural Born Killers, JFK, and a ton of other awesome movies. Depending on your age and location, it is highly likely that you have seen an Oliver Stone movie at some point in your life.
It looks like Stone’s domain name, OliverStone.com, expired on October 16, and it will be headed to auction at NameJet if it is not renewed:
I have published two articles in the last couple of weeks about celebrity domain names expiring. BobCostas.com and JackNicholson.com expired within a few days of each other, and it appears that both were renewed. I did a bit of searching on Archive.org, and it didn’t seem like either of those domain names was developed.
Unfortunately for Mr. Stone, it appears that OliverStone.com was being used. In fact, if you visit Stone’s official Twitter page, you can see a link to the OliverStone.com domain name right in his profile:
Archive.org shows that OliverStone.com had been a developed website with information about Mr. Stone. It looks like the title of the website when it was live was “The Oliver Stone Experience.” According to a DomainTools Whois History Tool search, it looks like the domain name was registered to a Universal / NBC affiliated entity prior to its expiration.
As of the time of publication, there are quite a few backorders for this domain name. The backorder deadline is at 11pm tonight (eastern time).
They manage more than 4000 domains :O

I remember reading the article on dnjournal a few years back about him buying the name for $6k. Looks like he will have to spend that again if they dont renew it
Why couldn’t this have happened to John Stamos instead? Actually the .com was finally secured last year and it’s good till 2019.
Have a fine Thanksgiving Elliot.
These days anyone who’s anyone can’t be caught not letting their domain expire.
Some good stuff here from Bill Sweetman 😀
