Twin TowersParamount Pictures has announced an untitled feature film about the rescue of two Port Authority police officers from the rubble of the World Trade Center. Variety reports that Oliver Stone will direct and Nicolas Cage will star. Andrea Berloff, who wrote the 2002 film Domestic and the upcoming remake of Don't Look Now, has written the script. Cage will portray one of the two Port Authority police officers, Will Jimeno and John McLoughlin, who were among the many rescuers who risked their lives rushing into the buildings.

Columbia Pictures is also hard at work on a 9/11 film based on the Jim Dwyer-Kevin Flynn book "102 Minutes." Billy Ray, the writer and director of Shattered Glass, has turned in a first draft which the studio seems to like. The book follows the rescue attempts that took place between the moment the first plane hit the World Trade Center at 8:46 am. and the collapse of the first tower at 10:28 am.

Question to the readers:So is it now okay to make a 9/11 movie? If so, why? What if it was a fictional tale taking place during the events and not based on a real-life story?
