Flight MH370 is still missing, but a movie is in the works already

A film about missing Flight MH370 is among the more unusual projects being pitched at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

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.
