In the Shadow of 9/11. ‘The Looming Tower’ Stars Jeff Daniels and Alec Baldwin. Watch the Trailer and Find Out More.

The folks over at Amazon have just released the first trailer for The Looming Tower, a drama that is described as taking ‘a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and the FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq.’

Based on Lawrence Wright’s pulitzer prize winning book, The Looming Tower stars Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom, Godless) Tahar Rahim, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg (The Post, The Shape of Water, Call Me By Your Name), Virginia Kull, Sullivan Jones, Wrenn Schmidt and the legend that is Alec Baldwin. As impressive, it’s written by the twice Oscar nominated screenwriter Dan Futterman (Capote, Foxcatcher), and directed by Alex Gibney, who is best known for his work as a documentarian, having won the best documentary Academy Award back in 2007.

In short, The Looming Tower is without a doubt one of Amazon’s most ambitious and prestigious looking acquisitions. Check out the trailer below!
