Missing Malaysian Plane Saga to be Made into a Movie

Indian film director Rupesh Paul has revealed he is making a film about missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. Speaking at the Cannes film festival, Paul said the drama titled Vanishing Act , “will not affect any passengers’ families” and will not be based on “stupid things”.

A trailer of the film, earlier uploaded onto YouTube, shows a Malaysian aircraft traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in 2014. The  scenes show oblivious passengers sleeping as the clock counts down, there are hints of a love triangle among airline staff and someone on board appearing to carry a gun.

The trailer has been viewed nearly 140,000 times already, with hundreds registering their disgust and others accusing Paul of being a “sick”, “disrespectful” and “ruthless”.

At the film festival, Rupesh defended the movie arguing that the public want to see a thriller rather than a documentary and he was not exploiting the tragedy adding that he had already received interest from Malaysian and Chinese buyers.

Rupesh says the movie is based on a Malaysian reporter’s working theory on what happened to the original missing plane. Vanishing Act gives an insight on events that happened before a plane mysteriously disappeared with the 35,000 passengers on board.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a Boeing 777, disappeared on March 8 shortly after take-off with 239 passengers aboard. Authorities have been searching for the plane in the Indian Ocean, west of Australia, but have so far found no wreckage.
