Well, what the hell was supposed to happen? File this one under "non-news".

Sounds like a hollywood blockbuster to me. Come to think of it, I wonder how long it will take before we see a World Trade Center disaster movie? I made that comment to a roommate of mine when we were watching the news on 9/11 and he got mad at me for making a sick joke. Now it doesn't seem like such a far fetched idea.

I think it won't be for awhile. Perhaps a little sooner than it took them to make Pearl Harbor movies.

Actually, I read about two weeks after 9/11 that Oliver Stone was trying to get a green light on a film about the disaster, but no executive in Hollywood would give him one. It was just too soon afterwards. Now, if he were to go back, I think he'd have better luck.
