Wild About Movies publisher, Tim Nasson, sat with Nicolas Cage, star of “World Trade Center,” a day before he started filming, last winter. “It’s going to be an overwhelming experience. I know that,” he said. “But this movie is not a gratuitous film. It’s about two people, trapped in the rubble of one of the fallen towers, who find a way to survive. That is what the movie is about. A survival movie.”
We catch up with Academy Award winning actor and two-time Academy Award winning director, Oliver Stone, at the end of July for an exclusive sit down interview. Stay tuned!Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone tells the true story of the heroic survival and rescue of two Port Authority policemen; John McLoughlin (Nicolas Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Pena); who were trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, after they went in to help people escape. The film also follows their families as they try to find out what happened to them, as well as the rescuers who found them in the debris field and pulled them out. Their story shows how the best in people rose above the tragic events of that day. Who better than Oliver Stone to get his hands on this material – or worse. He did The Vietnam War correctly, twice – “Platoon” and “Born on the Fourth of July.” But he botched the wars of “Alexander.” Can Stone do justice to the War on Terror? Stay tuned. Wild About Movies interviews the entire cast and “World Trade Center” two-time Academy Award winning director – Oliver Stone, this summer.
The movie’s release will mark the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on The World Trade Center.
