View Full Version : something frightening i just thought of

11-24-2004, 07:45 AM
i cannot believe that i have not seen anybody say/write
it before and that it took me so long to think of it myself..

..there is most likely going to be a movie about 9/11 in,
say, five to ten years in the theatres. and the thought of
that makes me want to poke myself in the eye with a fork.

it frightens me to think about how this movie may look
like...so i might as well not think about it at all. i cant help
building up that damn patriotic image in my mind, though.

reminds me on "independence day" and "the day after
tomorrow". -shudders-

I think there's a film already being made. Mota Boy posted about it, I think.

Can't be too cool for the guys who play the terrorists. People will be hissing at them on the streets and shit.

whoever is making the movie is already guarenteed a shitload of money because people are going to go see it no matter what.

I know there already is a film about it. It deals with the story of the firemen I believe. I haven't seen it, only read a little bit about it.

I don`t think it`s that bad. People will now realise more how the situation in the towers was at that moment, which is interesting.

Of course not, most people will look at them as actors not as persons

I refuse to watch any of those movies.
long live America & their ridiculous outings of patriotism.

Hahaha, you'd be surprised how many people get so caught up in the roles of actors and actresses (especially those of long-running tv-shows). And I believe the movie will be a tv-film.

i think lousyskater is right...people will go watch it. joy and a
lot others might not, but still a LOT of people will. hell, i
watched silly american patriotic movies myself, every goddamn
time, although i dont like them...why did i? i was interested.
god knows why o.0 and i know i am not the only person who
thinks like that..

oh and by the way, i really had no idea that there was a movie
already. now that i think about it, maybe i did read mota boy
post such a topic.. -puzzled- but then i forgot.

Is this real or is this satire?

'9/ll Commission Report' Moves Closer to TV

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - NBC has moved closer to bringing the best-selling official narrative of the Sept. 11 attacks on America to TV, clinching a deal with Hollywood filmmakers at Imagine Entertainment, the network said on Friday.

Imagine's owners, director Ron Howard and producing partner Brian Grazer, will serve as executive producers on the eight-hour miniseries, which uses the "9/11 Commission Report" as its primary source material, NBC said.

The General Electric Co.-owned network said previously it had teamed up with Graham Yost, the writer-producer behind the acclaimed HBO war series "Band of Brothers" to develop the project. Yost remains on board to write the "9/11" screenplay and executive produce with Howard and Grazer.

The three previously worked together on the HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon," about the early U.S. space program.

The "9/11 Commission" report, a comprehensive account of the suicide hijackings that killed about 3,000 people, has been praised by critics for its crisp narrative style and became a surprise bestseller with more than 1 million copies sold. It was nominated last month for a National Book Award.

As a product of a panel established by the U.S. government, the 567-page report is in the public domain, so TV producers can draw from the material without paying for rights to it.

The top programer at rival broadcaster ABC, Stephen McPherson, said recently his network was in the process of developing a similar project based on the commission report. ABC is owned by Walt Disney Co. .

But NBC, by striking a deal with Imagine, the production house behind such feature films as "A Beautiful Mind" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," has improved its chances of bringing its production to the small screen first.

No air date has been set, but a network spokeswoman said the miniseries could debut as soon as next season. No casting decisions have been made.

Grazer told the entertainment trade paper Daily Variety he intended to stick with the report's nonpartisan tone and "to dramatize in the best and most authentic way what we've learned from it."

I just can't tell anymore.

There have been at least a couple films about it out that I know of. One was a documentary that actually had footage from inside the Trade Center as it was burning. It came out mere months after the attacks, and so it was exceedingly careful in how it dealt with it - no narration, only eerily silent footage taken that day. About a year after the attacks there was another movie that only dealt with the periphery of the attacks - I think it starred Sigourney Weaver and focused on a fire chief having to write a eulogy for men who died in the attacks.

And now we have this... people didn't know how to go about it, so they had to wait for a book to emerge. And I guess a government report is as good as they'll get at the moment.

And Vera - I think that you're seriously underestimating the intelligence of people. Over time, during a long-running series, people often come to assume that actors have many of the characteristics of the characters they play, but nobody is going to see actors pretending to be terrorists on a made-for-TV movie and say "Ma, git mah rahfle, I'm gonna go kill me onnuv them rag heads. According to the imdb they's all a-livin' in Los Angelas".

I think I was seriously joking with that comment.
