Billy Ray To Direct Sci-Fi “Departure”

“Shattered Glass” writer/director Billy Ray is set to pen and direct the sci-fi romance feature “Departure” at Good Universe.

The project is inspired by Martin Caidin’s book “Ghosts of the Air” about real accounts from pilots who have experienced flight anomalies.

The story will follow a brilliant Miami-based FAA investigator who is obsessed with learning how a 727 suddenly vanished into thin air and then reappeared in the exact same spot ten minutes later.

As mysterious occurrences continue to occur with increasing frequency in the skies over Miami, the investigation becomes personal when the employee’s beloved wife is on one of the planes affected.

Casting will begin immediately. Jim Whitaker is producing.
