Ok, this pisses me off big time. How in the holy hell can Oliver Stone be picked to make a big budget 9/11 movie? This is just another example of how out of touch with the majority of Americans Hollywood is. I bet he has logged onto DU already to get some hints on some conspiracy theories.
LOS ANGELES — Paramount Pictures announced Friday that it will finance and distribute an as-yet-unmade film about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, to be directed by Oliver Stone, no stranger to controversy, and starring Nicolas Cage.
If the movie does get made — always a big if in this town — it might be the first major-studio, high-dollar Hollywood production about 9/11 to find its way to the multiplex.
Nicolas Cage, above, has been signed to star in a Paramount Pictures film about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Oliver Stone, below, will direct.
Paramount rushed out its announcement of the deal after the Hollywood trade paper Variety reported on it Friday, linking it to the terror attacks in London, which Variety said came “at a time when Hollywood seems ready — finally — to tell the tale of Sept. 11.”
The Paramount movie will focus on the true story of the rescue of two Port Authority police officers trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center. “The film,” the studio promised in its statement, “is a portrayal of how the human spirit rose above the tragic events of that day.”
There are soooooo many competent directors out there but Paramount chooses this moonbat drug addict loser to direct this. And they wonder why business has been down for 20 straight weeks. I can see it now, Sean Penn as the wayward, kinder, misunderstood Mohammed Atta.
This will be made for the European/World market, plain and simple. If it shows the US in a bad light then Europe will buy it.
Freakin idiots I tell you.
Please do your part and email Paramount head Brad Grey. Let him know your concerns.
