Apparently a group of Greek lawyers is threatening to sue Oliver Stone and Warner Bros. over their depiction of Alexander the Great as bisexual. "We are not saying that we are against gays," one of the lawyers tells The Guardian. "But we are saying that the production company should make it clear that the film is pure fiction and not a true depiction of the life of Alexander."

Hmmm. Maybe I should get a bunch of outraged classicists to sue the makers of Troy. Any takers?
