    that's right boys and s, they ARE actually gonna make a friggin movie out of it...found this on entertainment weekly's site...





    REEL DEALS Sigourney Weaver will star in ''The Guys,'' the first film to deal with the events of 9/11, based on a play commissioned and directed by her husband, Jim Simpson. Simpson will also direct the movie, which will costar Anthony LaPaglia as a New York fire chief who must compose eulogies for eight firemen lost at the World Trade Center and enlists an editor (Weaver) to help him. The play was based on the real-life experience of Anne Morse, who teaches at the Columbia School of Journalism. She met Simpson at a dinner party, and he encouraged her to turn the experience into a stage drama. Nine days later, he had a play to stage at his Flea Theater near Ground Zero. The initial staging starred Weaver and her ''Ghostbusters'' pal Bill Murray; since then, the play has featured LaPaglia and Susan Sarandon, while the current run stars Tim Robbins and Swoosie Kurtz. Shooting begins this month in New York....
