Paramount studios have been slammed for announcing Nicolas Cage will star in
Hollywood’s first movie dramatization of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks–within 24 hours of the London bombings on July 7.
News of the movie broke in the Friday edition of showbiz newspaper
Variety, the day after the tragedy in the English capital, and a studio insider
admits the timing is not “ideal.”
The movie giants have shocked the public with their inadvertent display of
double standards–studios and broadcasters avoided any theme reminiscent of
the devastating attacks on New York’s World Trade Center, even erasing images
of the towers from film stock where possible.
The movie, which will feature Cage as real-life policeman Sergeant John
McLoughlin, is based on an original screenplay by Andrea Berloff about
McLoughlin and his colleague William Jimeno, who were saved from the wreckage
of the Twin Towers.
