Stone Starts Shooting 9/11 Film

Oliver Stone USA Today is reporting that Oliver Stone has begun shooting one of the first major Hollywood production to portray the events of 9/11. The work is to focus on the story of a few of the survivors of the attack instead of trying to tell the entire story of the day. Some scenes are shooting in New York, but the majority of traumatic scenes will be shot on soundstages in LA.

Stone isn't alone thought in his subject matter. There's a movie called "Flight 93" which tells the story of the plane that went down in Pennsylvania. There's a miniseries based on the 9/11 Commission Report. Finally there's a movie based on the book "102 Minutes" about survivors in the Towers after these were attacked, but before they collapsed.

Stone's work has been reviewed by family members of survivors to ensure that the film dealt with the matter sensitively. However, with the glut of work coming out about 9/11 it seems unlikely that all of them will adhere to the same standards. --Terrence Ryan
