Worst casting ever? Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg star in 9/11 film

StaffRebel Columnist

When it comes to movies based on the 9/11 terror attack, it's doubtful the first actors that come to mind are Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg. Yet, someone actually thought this was a good idea.

The film, simply titled “9/11” is based on Patrick Carson’s stage play Elevator. According to EW, “the film recreates actual events adapted from voicemail messages left by victims. The story follows five people trapped in an elevator inside the World Trade Center’s North Tower. The group works together to find hope amid seemingly inescapable circumstances.”

On Tuesday, Atlas Distribution announced a wide-release for the film with a September 8, 2017 release date.

“9/11 is an inspiring story told with the sincerest of intent, and we’re very proud to help usher in Charlie Sheen’s return to dramatic roles,” Atlas head Harmon Kaslow said in a statement. “Like the play upon which 9/11 was based, the movie gives us an opportunity to take a glimpse into the experiences of a few who actually lived the event.”

Spoiler alert….Illuminatii and relatives of George Bush are overheard planting explosives for controlled demolition…..the only mention of any islamic terrorist will be one of the overheard conversations where they intend to frame the innocent Osama bin Ladin….doors on the elevator will then partially open and the conspirators will throw a thermite device into the elevator to get rid of the pain in the ass witnesses.

Ron Joseph; Probably not. Otherwise Whoopi would’ve walked off the set. Maybe that’s only for O’reilly.

I wonder if the movie will mention the word Muslim, or would that be politically incorrect?

The only line that Whoopi will be reciting is “it’s Donald Trump’s fault”. Poor taste choosing these people.
