The Guy Who Directed Brandon Lee's 'Laser Misson' Is Making A 9/11 Conspiracy Movie With Woody Harrelson & Martin Sheen

So, one of America's most defining moments in contemporary history is being put in the hands of the guy who directed "Charlie Sheen's Stunt Spectacular" and Brandon Lee's "Laser Mission." And no, we're not cherry picking out of the CV (or IMDB page) of BJ Davis -- those really are some of the "highlights," as it were, from the stuntman/stunt coodinator/director's resume. Now it looks like he's putting his tinfoil hat on.

So, one of America's most defining moments in contemporary history is being put in the hands of the guy who directed "Charlie Sheen's Stunt Spectacular" and Brandon Lee's "Laser Mission." And no, we're not cherry picking out of the CV (or IMDB page) of BJ Davis -- those really are some of the "highlights," as it were, from the stuntman/stunt coodinator/director's resume. Now it looks like he's putting his tinfoil hat on.

Davis is set to direct "September Morn" a 9/11 movie that will feature an ensemble led by Woody Harrelson and Martin Sheen (not bad) and nicely rounded out by Ed Asner, John Heard, Esai Morales, Daniel Sunjata and Judd Nelson. Penned by Howard Cohen, the movie will follow a group of folks who revisit and question the independent investigation into 9/11. We really hope this isn't going to be some kind of door opening onto the various conspiracy theories around September 11th. But considering the meat of the cast -- Harrelson, Asner and Sheen -- are part of Actors And Artists For 911 Truth, you can bet this one will stir the pot.

Among the things the group is seeking answers for (read it all here) is why the airliners weren't intercepted, and what really caused the collapse of the World Trade Buildings, damage at the Pentagon, and more. The real meat and potatoes of truthers. Some of their platform is compelling -- such as the argument that 9/11 was being used to increase military spending and justify torture -- but this other stuff is tricky at best. The film itself was announced a year ago (but no one noticed) under its original title "Confessions Of A 9/11 Conspirator" (subtle, guys) and it will be shot on a single location, "12 Angry Men" style. Gotta keep budgets down we suppose.

The film is being shopped at AFM so we'll see if it finds backers to make it happen. But it can't be worse than "Laser Mission," can it?
