NEW YORK (CBS4) — Actor Robert De Niro will host CBS’ update of its award-winning film on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to mark the 10th anniversary next month.

CBS will revisit its film, “9/11,” first broadcast in 2002, including new interviews with firefighters and others who were part of the first film. The Peabody Award-winning film contains the only known footage of the first plane striking the World Trade Center.

The special will be broadcast over two hours on the night of the anniversary.

De Niro, who was host of the original special nine years ago, will visit the 9/11 memorial and show viewers progress on the site’s rebuilding. Several television networks are commemorating the anniversary with retrospectives.
