Malaysian Flight 370 Movie In the Works (EXCLUSIVE TRAILER)
Variety.com ^ | 5-17-14 | Ramin Setoodeh

Posted on 05/17/2014 1:11:06 PM PDT by windcliff

One of the more unusual projects being pitched at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is “The Vanishing Act,” Indian director Rupesh Paul’s drama based on missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.

SEE MORE: Cannes Film Festival

On Saturday afternoon, Paul presented his film idea to financiers with a 90-second teaser trailer, which features a cast of terrified passengers aboard a turbulent jetliner. He also had a poster with the tag line, “The untold story of the vanished Malaysian flight.”

After Flight 370 disappeared on March 8, Paul said that he was contacted by a Malaysian journalist with a theory about what happened. Paul then spent 20 days working on a screenplay with an ending that incorporated this idea. According to Paul, the journalist, who insists on anonymity for now, is one of the film’s investors.

I don’t know if this movie will go anywhere.

I was following CNN every day for the first month. Now I really don’t care about flight 370. Not even a little.

If it is found, that will bring the subject back up. Depending on what is found to have happened, the movie will either be right or it will be completely wrong.

I think this movie is (very) premature.

Will it include half an hour at the end explaining all the ridiculous conspiracy theories?

How will it end?

With a screen that says, "Tune into CNN for the conclusion."

I wonder if the movie would follow the book:

MH370 could have been found if airline bosses had paid just £6 to upgrade tracking software, claims new book

Yeah, but who decided they’d cheap out on ~$10 worth of software to keep track of a multigazillion dollar plane? Who does that? You’d think insurance would either demand it or give them a huge break for having it.

Inquiring minds/etc.

You never watched Lost, did you?

(Good for you.)

The entire series was a prequel to itself.
Seriously: as soon as you get used to the fact that every episode is mostly flashback about how the characters got to where they are, they go back in time. Then they start having falshbacks in the past. Then those flashbacks have flashbacks.

Where will it end? A black scree with small words of, “Well, we have no idea where it went.”

“Yeah, but who decided they’d cheap out on ~$10 worth of software to keep track of a multigazillion dollar plane? Who does that? “

The guys in the penthouse offices,that’s who. Look at the ignition switch problem GM just had-—and they’ve known about this for years.

They look at the bottom line. Period. (Lordy,I sound like a Communist.):-)

Insanely high body count. Other than that, pretty decent.

The latest conspiracy is that it landed in Diego Garcia and a Rothchild is behind it all.
