has hit out at reports his new 9/11 film will have a political agenda, insisting it will focus on two American civilians' fight for survival. Stone's film, which has been given the working title of "World Trade Center," will feature Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage
in the lead role.
The movie maker has courted controversy in the past with politically-charged Vietnam war films such as Platoon
and Born on the Fourth of July
He says, "This is not about the motives of the terrorists, or who the terrorists were, or the politics of 9/11 in any way. This film is the story of two guys trapped inside, and their families on the outside. It's a no-nonsense, austere, verite document of what they went through in those 24 hours, a procedural, and it should be shot like that."
