The horrific events of 9/11 will be getting the full Hollywood treatment – courtesy of Oliver Stone and Nicolas Cage.
The Paramount project will retell the story of John McLoughlin, who will be played by Cage, and William Jimeno. The two Port Authority police officers were rescued after being trapped in the rubble at Ground Zero.
Jimeno was pulled out after 12 hours; McLoughlin came out after 22 hours.
So now 9/11 is going to get the JFK treatment, with probably the same outcome on the weak-minded and vulnerable. That means in 20 years, I am going to have to argue with my students that planes full of Klansmen, Haitians, and Mormons did not really hijack trains and run them into buildings. And I’m with Mickey– someone stop Oliver Stone.
