Rumour Control: Hilary Swank as missing pilot?

Much like the plane/boat-swallowing Bermuda Triangle, the mysterious disappearance of pioneering aviation type Amelia Earhart is one of those puzzling oddities that continues to obsess people today, even though she vanished in 1937 while flying around the world.

It’s prime stuff for a biopic and Hilary Swank has been attached for a while. But the movie was grounded when Philip Noyce departed just before Christmas.

Now Moviehole is reporting that Mira Nair has stepped aboard to handle the directing controls, and, provided the script is in shape, it should be chocks away shortly for the shoot.
