Australian Film Shelved Due To Uncomfortable Similarities To MH370 Flight

An Australian horror-thriller film about a Beijing-Sydney flight crashing into the ocean under mysterious circumstances has been shelved due to “uncomfortable similarities” to missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, confirmed last night to have “ended in the southern Indian Ocean” by Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.  

The synopsis for shark-horror genre flick Deep Water (conceived as a loose followup to the patently preposterous Bait 3D) vaguely mirrors the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the Beijing bound Malaysian Airlines flight now believed to have crashed somewhere off the coast of Western Australia: “A plane flying from Beijing to Sydney crashes into the Pacific OceanThe surviving passengers and crew soon realise that their plane is starting to sink into a bottomless abyss and face terror beyond reckoning as they are surrounded by the deadliest natural born killers on earth.”   

“Out of sensitivity to the Malaysia flight situation, we’ve decided to put it on pause for now,” Gary Hamilton, Arclight Films managing director, told The Hollywood Reporter.
Bait 3D was a surprise box office hit in China, grossing $24.7 million in its first three weeks of release.
