Stone Plans Second 9/11 Movie
Director OLIVER STONE wants to make another movie about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, because the subject matter is too "huge" to cover in one film. The NATURAL BORN KILLERS director's new film WORLD TRADE CENTER has been acclaimed for its touching portrayal of the real-life fire fighters who risked their lives to save others in the rubble of New York's Twin Towers in 2001. His film, which stars NICOLAS CAGE as real-life 9/11 hero JOHN MCLAUGHLIN, has been well received in America, despite some criticism that the movie comes too soon after the tragedy, and that has spurred Stone on to consider a second World Trade Center project. Stone admits he has uncovered countless tales about the atrocities and he wants to bring them all to the big screen. At a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) lecture last night (06SEP06) Stone said, "It (9/11) was huge. I think it's the basis of another film for me. "I've started with the basics, with these two men in the centre of things."
