BP oil spill movie in the works

Posted by monique On March - 9 - 2011 0 Comment

Deadline is reporting that the Summit, Participant and Imagenation Abu Dhabi production companies are teaming up together to produce a film about the BP oil spill.

The film will be based on an article in the “New York Times” called “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hours” written by David Barstow, Stephanie Saul and David Rohde. The article extensively covered the events leading up to the destruction of the oil rig that led to the massive oil spill, the largest one in recorded American history. (You can read the actual “New York Times”story here). The screenwriter for the film is “Ninja Assassin”‘s Matthew Sand.

This film could provide a lot of closure for a lot of people in America and around the world, hopefully by tackling some questions about the nature of BP, showing us what the rig was like before it was destroyed and what safety measures were or weren’t taken, and what the crew was like.  Of course, these questions were answered in the expansive newspaper article, but to see it play out in a film format might help the sequence of events play better in people’s minds and help them immediately see what went wrong on the rig.
