The trailer for the highly-anticipated drama “9/11” starring Charlie Sheen hit the internet Friday and fans are excited for the controversial actor’s return to the big screen.
Boasting a cast of Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Gina Gershon, Luiz Guzman, Wood Harris and Jacqueline Bisset, “9/11” draws from the plot of the play “Elevator” by Patrick Carson. According to IMDb, the story follows five people as they “find themselves trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center’s North Tower on 9/11. They work together, never giving up hope, to try to escape before the unthinkable happens.”
The film will be Sheen’s first major motion picture since he fell from the good grace of the masses in 2011, after substance abuse and issues in his sex life derailed the Hollywood star’s status as the highest paid actor on television, having earned $1.8 million per episode on “Two and a Half Men.”
A film about 9/11 appeals to Sheen, in particular, who has been an outspoken advocate of the 9/11 truth movement and even requested President Obama launch a new investigation into the attacks in September of 2009.
Directed by Martin Guigui and featuring the writing of playwright Patrick Carson, the film is set to be an accurate representation of Carson’s original work. For Sheen, it’s an effort to turn over a new leaf and give new meaning to his acting career. Bursting on the scene in the 80s with movies like “Platoon,” “Wall Street,” “Young Guns” and “Major League,” Sheen was everything people wanted in a full-fledged movie star. Whether he can summon that old mojo for his role in “9/11” remains to be seen.
The film is set to be released in theaters on September 8.
