Oliver Stone will direct a film based on the story of two police officers that were trapped in the rubble on September 11, 2001.
Nicolas Cage will star as Port Authority police Sgt. John McLoughlin. McLoughlin and fellow officer William J. Jimeno became trapped during rescue efforts after the collapse of the twin towers.
"It's a work of collective passion, a serious meditation on what happened and carries within a compassion that heals," Stone said. "It's an exploration of heroism in our country, but it's international at the same time in it's humanity."
The film also will focus on the officers' rescuers and their families. McLoughlin and Jimeno are said to be the *last* two men rescued.
The film will release next year.
