The Skyjack movie rights have been acquired by CBS Films with Will Gluck set to direct.
Skyjack: The Hunt For D.B. Cooper is a non-fiction book written by Geoffrey Gray about a man named D.B. Cooper who hijacked a Boeing 727 in the 1970′s. He then demanded money and parachutes and was given them. Then he escaped by jumping out over the Pacific Northwest. He was never caught. The book overviews a few perspectives from a few different people who were involved with the case.
I’m not sure about this one. I haven’t ever heard of D.B. Cooper, but non-fiction movies can be hard to pull off if not done right. There needs to be a certain balance of entertainment and staying true to the actual facts. I hope Gluck and CBS Films will be able to pull it off.
What do you think of the non-fiction Skyjack book being made into a movie? Do you like watching non-fiction movies from books?
