Sheen and Harrelson to star in 9/11 'truther' film

Film calls for independent investigation into the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001

By Ben Arnold | Yahoo UK Movies News

Martin Sheen and Woody Harrelson are to star in a new film which questions the official story behind the 9/11 attacks.

'September Morn' supports some of the theories of the 'truther' movement, which has questioned the established version of the events of September 11, hinting at a government conspiracy.

The publicity note which the film is using, rather than give the usual idea of plot, reads: “We the people demand that the government revisits and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 9/11. In the vein of 'Twelve Angry Men' this dramatic piece is set with a stellar and award winning cast.”

Also signed up are Judd Nelson, Ed Asner and Esai Morales.

So far Hollywood has shied away from suggesting the possibility of a conspiracy at the heart of the terrorist attacks, with films like Oliver Stone's 'World Trade Center' in 2006 and Paul Greengrass's 'United 93' taking a non-partisan stance.

But Sheen and Harrelson have previously been vocal with their over what happened.

“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 was referring to 7 World Trade Center, the collapse of which many in the 'truth movement' point to as evidence of a conspiracy, after he was turned on to an alternative explanation by his son Charlie.

Meanwhile Asner, who voiced Carl Fredricksen in Pixar's 'Up', has said in interview: “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 defence 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.”

The film is being made by the same company which produced 'A Noble Lie', a documentary about the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.

2,605 people died in 2001 when 19 Islamist hijackers crashed planes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Virginia, while another crashed in Pennsylvania ahead of its target of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, the subject of Greengrass's film 'United 93'.

Comments

I read through the comments - why do the FBI think everyone is as silly as they are? Many Elvis comments - it shows they have no imagination or writing ability.

Very excited about The Noble Lie people making this - now that's an excellent movie.

oops

.

It's production is being done by the company which did Noble Lie

way cool

Now Stick with it and Make the Movie!

This looks good to me and is line with Asner's original conception based on '12 Angry Men.' I must admit I got a little peeved when Howard kept re-writing the script and changing the title. Thumbs up for this one.

Donations

www.actorsandartistsfor911truth.com is seeking donations to make this film as of this date. Who controls that website? Where do those donations go? Are they currently soliciting volunteer not paid labor as well as donations? Is anyone getting paid for their work? Where do any profits from this film go?

The 'Other' Film...

I donated to the 'other' project some months ago and later received this reply (in part):

"Such was the case with our feature film, “A Violation of Trust”.

Shortly after the January “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth” newsletter featured a story about our proposed film I was contacted by what I can only call a “Hollywood bottom-feeder” who informed me that he had gotten hold of a copy of our script and “copyrighted our script” without our knowledge and definitely without our permission.

He was trying to use that copyright registration to extort money from us. Several attorneys informed me that while this is both illegal and unethical, it’s not the first time this has happened in Hollywood.

Faced with lengthy and expensive legal procedures to reverse this illegal copyright, we were advised to close down production of the film based upon the illegally copyrighted script. That’s what we did.

However, we immediately turned this negative into a positive by having an entirely new script written that presents an even more provocative and captivating film opportunity that allows our feature film to touch upon the human side of this tragedy and be of even “greater value” to the public – by exposing not only the lies about the official account of that day, but the consequences of those lies – which brings the movie into the current political, social and economic climate we are all suffering through as a result of whatever really happened on 9/11."

I never replied -- total BS IMHO. Oh well.

∎∎

I just searched at the location beneath for "Violation of Trust" and did not find any copyright matching the story presented above.

http://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First

AConfederacyofDunces, where can I find this copyright? And where exactly did your donation money go?

911ARTISTS...

The note came back from: Howard Cohen -- exec.director@aa911truth.org

Francis Strasser was/is the fund raising coordinator for "A Violation of Trust" who acknowledged my donation by email, and is also at "aa911truth.org" Maybe he's sincere, but we don't need a movie about post-9/11 crimes. The point is that 9/11 itself is an unsolved crime.

Thanks

∎∎∎

Thank you. I meant, do you know the exact use of your donation money? And did Cohen give any evidence to you for his story about the copyright theft? Where is the copyright viewable?

None

I have no idea how the funds were applied nor whether the copyright is viewable. I'm not familiar with how one protects Hollywood scripts, but it just sounds like a 'story' to me (read: BS). I've been told that a script has copyright just by the act of its existence, but I'm not a lawyer. Like I said above, the fact that the focus is being taken from the crime of 9/11itself to the telling the story of the after effects doesn't smell right.

∎∎∎∎

AConfederacyofDunces, thank you for your efforts.

Well, let's see the use of any donations made at www.actorsandartistsfor911truth.com/ for this film project. And let's see that copyright, people.

∎∎∎∎∎

jnelson, you are an active member of this forum and I think you are a part of the group of people making this film. I'm asking you personally now to show here the copyright for "A Violation of Trust" to verify Howard Cohen's story shown above. I'm also asking you personally now to show here an open accounting of donations received to make this film at www.actorsandartistsfor911truth.com .

∎∎∎∎∎∎

Let's see that copyright and the accounting, please.

Comments

I'm reading through the comments and am heartened. Seems like the majority so far are sympathetic to a constructed 9/11.
Have to admit I cringe when a 9/11 skeptic puts up nonsense to support our cause. Shills or ignorance? Maybe someday....

Thanks!

Hi Scuba - like old times!

Me too! This Movie has the largest, most dramatic spread into the mainstream media for some time. A round of thanks must go the Asner, Harrison, Sheen (and Sheen!). It seems that stars do make a difference!

A New Investigation..........

This movie calls for a new investigation into 9/11. Kudos to that - a proper investigation is what we all need.

But could it ever happen in this country, satisfactorily? The problem here - and its a huge problem - any investigation with the power to enforce the law, and charge people with criminal offenses if the need arises, necessarily involves the placement of the investigation within the auspices of the US Justice Department - a part of the US Federal Government. Even with full subpoena power, any investigation by those with the capacity to enforce the law will be severely compromised, by default. In other words, is it *POSSIBLE* for the relevant department/s of the US government to fairly, and without bias, investigate other elements within the US Government, w.r.t. the worst crime committed on US soil? Is it possible for the inquirers to investigate the intelligence agencies, the military, and even the investigative body/bodies themselves? There will be all manner of refusals to cooperate, citing the usual phony-baloney "national security" excuses and other weasel words, and so on. There will be a massive effort, as with the original 9/11 Commission farce, to "limit its power and scope, its funding, and the time permitted to come up with a conclusion". If they haven't already been destroyed, any incriminating documents will be through those shredders before you can utter the words - "Dick Cheney".

With these problems in mind, it is up to we the people to come up with some creative ways of (legally) taking the perpetrators out of circulation for the rest of their natural lives... so they, and their cohorts in crime cannot pull the same stunts, ever again.

couldn't say it better, myself

Indeed, this is our biggest challenge and the sooner we come together to meet this challenge head on with a creative and aggressive agenda of our own, the closer we will be to widespread awareness and some semblance of justice. My prayer is that September Morn has a similar impact to Oliver Stone's JFK. We certainly stand more to gain with THAT than any investigation our government might construe. I hope others are praying with me.

Everyone seems to know about this........

I just got an email from a complete stranger to 9/11 research stating: "Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson To Star In 9/11 'Truther' Film;" which is news to her of course but not to me.

.

As is understood here, deception as powerful as 911 will be defended at all cost. Huffpost, under 'truther' title of their report on this movie [Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson To Star In 9/11 'Truther' Film 'September Morn' ] projects another Woody H movie trailer of '7 Psychopaths' just above comments section, its positioning clearly indicating its editorial direction : truther+psychopath=this movie.
That H/post don't have the cojones to address the forensics laid at the door of the 7 real Psycopaths in neocon WhiteHouse party to 911 inside job false flag, is distressing to anyone anywhere awaiting decent investigative reporting. But no longer a surprise.

However. As with the cartooNIST reports, the Commission report fairy tale, and WMD/anthrax lie, there is a critical moment in the maintenance of narrative allowing those with intuition and real time concern a look into the deepstate. A movie like this, if its premis is accurate, can only help the balance swing toward realization of 911 as false flag and is to be applauded.

If one chooses "Favorites" one finds many more sympathetic remarks. The trolls are posting a constant stream of ridicule without substance. Their version of clasping the hands over the ears and shouting "La, la, la, la, la, la, la..."

Brief Analysis

I conducted my own brief analysis of the comments at Huff Post for this article. I only looked at the last page and did so this morning (it changes with new comments, of course. Now over 6500). Trolling seems to be in evidence, but this is subjective without further inquiry. I also noted the "why?" of a posters comment and have created a 'false argument' category. Some con posters seemed sincere -- if wrong -- in their comments. Some comments were tit/tat or grammatical and so ignored those few.

Pro investigation........................................63
Pro investigation/false argument...........04 = 67 total

Con investigation.......................................25
Con investigation/false argument..........31 = 56 total

Two 'con' posters (of 5 total) constituted 90% of the con comments: Gasparilla (join 3/08) & Tgallant ( join 9/12) Busy beavers!

There were 13 'pro' posters. Distribution: 15,14, 9,7, 7, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1 comments respectively
