Variety reports that Goldie Hawn's Cosmic Entertainment has made a deal with cable's FX network to produce an original movie about the passengers of United Flight 93, the hijacked jet that crashed in a Pennsylvania field on September 11. Aboard that plane was gay public relations exec and rugby player Mark Bingham, who is thought to be one of the passengers who fought back against the hijackers. Hawn is also an executive producer of The Matthew Shepard Story, which premieres on NBC on March 16.
