Trailer Released For Netflix Michael Keaton Movie Set During 9/11

A film starring Michael Keaton is set to drop next month on Netflix and we've been given our first trailer.

The streaming service has debuted the teaser for Worth, which is a different look at the aftermath of the September 11 attacks in America.

Keaton stars as Kenneth Feinberg and the movie is based on the real events that saw the Victim Compensation Fund launched by Congress following the terrorist attack.

It dives into how the lawyer worked out how much money should be given to victims families.

They had to determine what monetary value to assign to a human life, which is a pretty harrowing concept.

The official synopsis is listed as: "An attorney learns a lesson in empathy when he is faced with the near-impossible task of determining how to compensate families who suffered incalculable losses as a result of the September 11th attacks in 2001."

Keaton will be joined on screen by Amy Ryan, Stanley Tucci, Marc Maron, Tate Donovan and Laura Benanti.

The movie has been in the works for more than a decade.

The screenplay, written by Max Borenstein, first dropped back in 2008 and David Frankel signed on to direct the film.

However, the project stalled until two years ago when The Kindergarten Teacher director Sara Colangelo took over.

Sine the trailer dropped online, people are really excited to take a peek into the controversial and convoluted way victims received compensation for 9/11.

One person said: "I'm happy that they are speaking up about this issue. Many people were screwed over in benefits after 911."

Another added: "Stanley Tucci, Amy Ryan & Michael Keaton?! Ok, will definitely watch this!!! So excited."

A third wrote: "As someone who was a scared NYC teenager that day, I'm apprehensive to watch this....but Keaton and Tucci are a very persuasive combo."

The movie will drop on September 3, which is just a few days before the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
