Movie about missing flight MH370 to be released in August (see trailer)

the_vanishing_actA film about missing Flight MH370 is among the more unusual projects being pitched at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, held from May 14 to 25 in the southern French seaside town.

“The Vanishing Act”, a drama by Indian director Rupesh Paul, features a cast of terrified passengers on board a doomed jetliner, and carries the tag line “the untold story of the vanished Malaysian flight”.

MH370 disappeared over the Indian Ocean on March 8 while flying between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Beijing, China with 239 people on board. To date, no trace of the Boeing 777 has been found.

Paul came up with the idea for the film after he was contacted by a Malaysian journalist in the wake of the plane’s disappearance.

The teaser trailer was shot in six days in an Aerobus parked in Bombay, India.  The budget for the film is estimated to be about $3.5 million, with a 35-day shoot using more than 200 actors, the director told potential investors.

He said he plans to release the movie in August.
