Interesting news titbit

Hi everyone,

Thought this thread might be of interest to everyone - Wondered how long it would take for Hollywood to look at this.

Hi Michelle

Ahh, the vultures close in I see. Of course, there was that awful crash around 15(?) years ago when that plane took off from Washington National and crashed straight through the ice on the freezing Potomac River, causing many deaths I believe?

Wonder why the vultures never considered that event as a money-making deal?

I know what you mean.

As said on another thread, it's quiet on here or I wouldn't have even spotted this thread going.

Don't remember there being a film about the incident you mention. Though I do seem to remember one of the sons from 'The Waltons' starring in a b-type made for TV film about some kind of air-crash. Cant' remember exactly what it was about though - as you can guess it wasn't very memorable!!

I think the reason a movie wasn't made from the previous crash is because Hollywood likes happy endings....they sell!! Since this most recent crash has a happy ending AND a hero....well, they see $$$$ signs!

You know who would be perfect to play Captain Sully?

Donald Sutherland, 10 year ago.

Yes, you're right.

I hardly think Tom Cruise is a suitable candidate. But, he obviously thinks he is.

Tom Cruise would certainly up the creep factor.

He's one of those weird characters I just can't understand. I can't decide if he's nice looking or not, and if he's a bit unhinged! Lol
