Director defends controversial Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 project

The director of a new movie about the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has defended the planned project.

A divisive trailer for The Vanishing Act sparked controversy when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival recently, but director Rupesh Paul has insisted that it is not an exploitative piece of film-making.

"Our movie is a thriller," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "It will not be based on stupid things.

"There will not be a [gun] and there will not be any aliens. The controversy will help indirectly, but we are not cashing in on the flight."

Paul went on to say that his biggest worry is not the sensitivity of the subject matter, but the danger of his film inaccurately portraying the story of the missing flight.

Director Defends Missing Flight 370 Film

Director Rupesh Paul says "Vanishing Act," his upcoming film about missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, will work as a standalone thriller no matter what happens in real life.

Paul tells THR that the film will not affect any passengers' families: "Our movie is a thriller. It will not be based on stupid things. There will not be a [gun] and there will not be any aliens. The controversy will help indirectly, but we are not cashing in on the flight."

Despite the subject matter, Paul says there is a market for the film: "People do not want a documentary, they want a thriller. Why should I make a movie on anything that does not attract people?". The plan is to have the movie ready for a theatrical release in the Fall.

MH370 vanished without a trace on March 8th with 239 people onboard, despite a thorough search there is still no indication as to what really happened.
