"Oliver Stone, who has directed political powder kegs like Born on the Fourth of July, Platoon and J.F.K., has started shooting in Glen Rock for an as-yet-untitled movie about the Sept. 11 attacks. Based on the true account of two Port Authority police officers who were rescued from the rubble of the World Trade Center, the film stars Nicolas Cage and is expected to be the first major studio release to focus on the attacks. While Lower Manhattan will be the center of the film, Glen Rock, a town of just over 11,000 people in Bergen County, had 11 residents who died in the World Trade Center."
