Hollywood is Working on a Malaysia Airlines Movie

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "I guarantee there are 50 different people working on 50 different projects ... right now," says one prominent producer.

For more than the last 15 days, coverage of the missing Malaysian Airlines has dominated the news networks, sending 24 hour news networks a ton of high ratings. Although the disappearance of Flight MH370 still remains a mystery, Hollywood is getting ready to make a feature film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who spoke with a prominent film producer in Hollywood, there is a lot of activity going on behind the scenes.
"It's a shocking tragedy, but even so, I guarantee there are 50 different people working on 50 different projects that are either inspired by it or based directly on it right now," says JC Spink, who executive produced the 2005 airline thriller Red Eye. In fact, Spink thinks that there's enough built-in intrigue surrounding the flight that vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing to make for a compelling aviation thriller. "Clearly something more happened on that flight than we'll ever know," he adds. "And that's a great jumping-off point."
As history can tell you, Hollywood has a reputation for making movies based on life-disasters including Airplane crashes. Not to mention the 2006 Oliver Stone feature film World Trade Center and Paul Greengrass' United 93.  But, with Flight MH370 the current desire to produce a feature film is overwhelming. CNN provided 24 hour coverage on the missing flight and it was the network that benefited the most climbing  nearly 110% in viewer ratings. The biggest obstacle Hollywood producers will have is to figure out what really happened on that flight. Truth is always stranger than fiction, and as of right now nobody knows what happened on that flight. For more details, read the full article on
