Lockerbie Disaster To Be Made Into A Movie
The 1998 Lockerbie bombing, which killed 259 passengers on board a Pan Am flight and 11 townspeople when the plane exploded over the Scottish village, is to be made into a movie.
New Zealand director NIKI CARO, who made WHALE RIDER, will base the movie on KEN DORNSTEIN's memoirs, which tells the story of Ken exploring his brother DAVID's life before he was killed in the terrorist attack.
Caro says, "I'm pretty compelled by material that's real and human. It looks at the emotional consequences of terrorism, but not in a political way."
Movie giants Warner Bros will fund the movie.
