Oliver Stone in talks to direct political thriller
Jawbreaker will be partly based on CIA commander Gary Bernsten's memoirs of invading Afghanistan and is currently being scripted by Cyrus Nowrasteh, who penned television mini series The Path to 9/11.
According to Empire Online, Stone told Variety magazine: "This will be partly about the ground war in Afghanistan, among other things.
"We've been discreet because we didn't want World Trade Center to be affected unnecessarily."
Stone is no stranger to the political or conspiracies genres. He previously directed JFK, a three-hour dissection of the Kennedy assassination starring Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones. Other credits include Born on the Fourth of July, Nixon and Alexander.
World Trade Center is out now and features Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena as New York police officers trapped underneath the rubble of the twin towers.
