A feature film based on the September 11th terror attacks is now in the works, with two Oscar winners at the helm.

Two-time Academy Award winner Oliver Stone will direct the film which will center on the last two men rescued after the collapse of the Twin Towers.

Oscar winner Nicholas Cage will star as Port Authority Police Sergeant John McLoughlin.

Mcloughlin and fellow officer William Jimeno became trapped while they tried to rescue others from the World Trade Center.

Lieutenant McLoughlin was removed from the wreckage 22 hours after the towers fell with help from an Army Reserve captain. McLaughlin has had over 30 surgeries during his recovery. He retired from the Port Authority Police Department in June, 2004.

Paramount Pictures expects the film to be released sometime next year.

No word on what the movie will be called.
Are they for real?! :ermm: Does anyone else find this absolutely preposterous?

That sounds about their pace. It wouldn't be so bad if the profits from it were to go the the vicitims of 9/11.

Don't really care that Nicholas Cage is in it, not cared for his movies for a while.
If it is Oliver Stone it should be good tho, if we forget a few of his previous films too ;)

This is sick, I dont see how they can even think to do this. Hollywood has been such a big fat turd lately, and this just futher proves it. I will not goto to see this movie or rent it, I would illegally download it at the most.

Yeah, I got it Elemental...

I think a lot depends on how they handle it. If they do a crappy job or add insult to injury to the victims... :( There could be a possible way to handle this, that far from profiting on terrorism or on the sufferage of the victims; could pay respect to the courage of both the people who lived through this, as well as the rescue workers who responded, on call...

A lot would depend how it's handled and how the audience walks away feeling. There was more that occured that unfortunate day then the terrorist attack. Lets just say to that other side of things that if the terrorists thought to break the American spirit that day, they failed... It is this other side of things that might not be a bad story to have told; if it's handled properly with the up most of respect to the above mentioned people...

Time will tell about this one. If it's turned into a cheap popcorn flick that fails to show such respect, then :(

Yes, giving some of the proceeds to the victims families would be a nice gesture :up:

yeah. was thinking of Rescue 911 (for those who don't know, it is/was a show with William Shatner about different calls to 911 for medical emergencies and stuff, hence the name Rescue 911). didn't even remember Farenheit 9/11. never saw it..... and don't plan to.

Nicholas Cage isn't that bad. some of his movies i liked quite a lot (Face Off, Con Air, Gone in 60 seconds, don't really remember any other movies he was in offhand).

yeah I liked the movies you mentioned...mostly gone in 60 seconds.


I am sick of people making stupid **** out of 9/11. Its over and done with stop making money off it!

A stupid example but its like my go kart video. I still get people talking about it and its still spreading across the internet. Its old but people still talk about it. Same as my damn fire jump during spring break that i didnt make lol. I still get people at parties saying **** about it but sometimes i get a free beer or something lol.

Well I first think they should give any and all money after making back the costs to famlies etc of the people that have a tie to the events like the families etc.

Second we all pretty figure the first ain't going to happen and that it will in all likelyhood be a unfitting tirbute to the folks

I'm not surprised at this. I knew that a movie (or movies) would be made about 9/11 someday, I just didn't know how soon it would happen. 4 years later is probably a bit soon... I expected at least 10 years. Then again, Oliver Stone has never really been one to steer clear of controversy.

Nick Cage can be an Oscar-calibar performer, he just gets stuck with summer popcorn movies all too often (think National Treasure). If anyone has seen Adaptation though then you can see he's got talent.

The words Oliver Stone and documentary don't go well together. Most of his "Documentaries" are nothing but lies and garbage that he feels is true. Personally, I don't like the guy ..

They aren't documentaries, they are feature films.
