An Early Peek at the Other "World Trade Center" Movie

by | April 5, 2006 | Comments

With everyone buzzing about Paul GreengrassUnited 93, another 9/11-centric project has fallen into the background … for now, anyway. But IGN FilmForce has a few tidbits reharding Oliver Stone‘s World Trade Center, including a plot recap, a cast list, and a pair of pics.

Says IGN FF: "Set for release on August 11th, 2006, is Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center, starring Nicolas Cage (Matchstick Men), Michael Pena (Crash), Maria Bello (Coyote Ugly), Maggie Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko) and Frank Whaley (The Doors). The movie tells the story of John McLoughlin (Cage) and William Jimeno (Pena), Port Authority police officers who were trapped for 22 hours at Ground Zero.

In early November of last year, upon commencement of photography, the filmmakers were quick to emphasize that the movie will not focus on the large political issues. "We’re not doing the Towering InfernoTitanic version," producer Michael Shamberg told The Associated Press. "We’re not doing everyone’s story that day. We’re trusted with the accuracy of the particular story that we’re telling."
