    Stone to direct the first 9/11 movie

    Paramount Pictures will finance and distribute an untitled feature about the rescue of two Port Authority police officers from the rubble of the World Trade Center, says Variety. Oliver Stone will direct the film and Nicolas Cage will star.
    After optioning the Jim Dwyer-Kevin Flynn book "102 Minutes" in February, Columbia Pictures has already received a first script draft by Billy Ray, writer and director of Shattered Glass.

    The project addresses the rescue attempts that took place between the moment the first plane hit the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. and the collapse of the first tower at 10:28 a.m.

    For the studio's sake I hope they have checked the script and has Stone under a waterproof contract. With his anti-establishment track record, it wouldn't be unreasonable to fear a Michael Moore type effort.

    If it were my money & business on the line, I wouldn't have taken the risk and would have used a more neutral director.
