Thanks to a Japanese production company, we now have the trailer to a film none of us asked for: 9/11, starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg–to be released September 8.
The movie is based on Patrick Carson’s stage play Elevator, which used real voicemails left by victims to mold its story about five strangers trapped in the North Tower who work together in an effort to survive, Mediaite reports.
Sheen is an odd choice to star in the film, considering in an interview with Alex Jones back in 2006, Sheen suggested that the towers were brought down via a “controlled demolition.”
“We’re not the conspiracy theorists on this issue,” Sheen said at the time. “It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 per cent of the targets – that feels like a conspiracy theory.”
Sheen then spoke at a 9/11 truther convention in Los Angeles before and reinforced his beliefs on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
I’ve done a lot of research,” Sheen said. “And it’s not just me. It’s the people that have come before me, the experts, the engineers, the physicists, the scientists and the scholars that raised a lot of these things. And I took a look at their research and said, ‘Yeah, it doesn’t add up.'”
I guess a job’s a job?
