September Mourn may be catering to the fringe 9/11 Truther movement, but the movie is getting some big-name stars attached.
Woody Harrelson and Martin Sheen have signed on to the movie that focuses on some of the theories of the so-called “9/11 Truther” movement, one that believes the mainstream media lied to the American people about what really happened on September 11, 2001, The Huffington Post reported.
The advance publicity note for September Mourn makes it appear that the film won’t skirt the controversy the 9/11 Truther movement has caused: “We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 911. In the vein of 12 Angry Men this dramatic piece is set with a stellar and award winning cast.”
The stars of September Mourn have expressed sympathy for the 9/11 Truther movement, Yahoo! Movies points out.
“I did not want to believe that my government could possibly be involved in such a thing, I could not live in a country that I thought could do that – that would be the ultimate betrayal,” said Sheen during a 2007 interview. “However, there have been so many revelations that now I have my doubts, and chief among them is Building 7 – how did they rig that building so that it came down on the evening of the day?”
Sheen’s reference to 7 World Trade Center is one of the tenets of the 9/11 Truther movement. They point to the collapse of the building as a sign of a greater conspiracy.
Another star of September Mourn, Ed Asner, has also expressed doubts about 9/11.
“My bottom line on all of this is that this country – which is the greatest, strongest country that ever existed in the world, in terms of power – supposedly had a defense that could not be penetrated all these years. But all of that was eradicated by nineteen Saudi Arabians, supposedly. Some of whom didn’t even know how to fly.”
Indie Wire reports that September Mourn will be directed by B.J. Davis, whose resume includes Charlie Sheen’s Stunt Spectacular and Forget About It. The movie, originally called Confessions Of A 9/11 Conspirator, was shot all in one location like 12 Angry Men, the report noted.
