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.”
