Oscar Winner wants to make UN film

Terry George and Oorlagh George

Oscar winner Terry George says one of his next projects will be a film about UN diplomat Sergio Vieira de Mello, who was killed in the bombing of the UN headquarters in Iraq in 2003

Mr. George won the Oscar for best live action short for "The Shore". The movie is about two boyhood friends that grow apart over the conflict escalating in Northern Ireland.

Mr. George, who made Hotel Rwanda, has been adapting the Samantha Powers book 'Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World' into a movie.
