So this guy in the UK goes out in his sea kayak in 2002 and is never seen again, though remains of his smashed boat are discovered. This weekend he shows up at a police station saying he may be a missing person. His wife says she thought he was dead and now fears she may have to repay his life insurance claim. Fascinating, right? Well, today he’s under arrest because of alleged pictures showing him with his wife last year.
I’m thinking if I were a screenwriter I’d be angling for the movie rights.
(New York Times now has the story.)
Amazing. If Hollywood is true their traditions, they could ‘spice-it-up’ by changing the screenplay so that the man was with another woman while pretending to be dead, and she’s pregnant.
Or they could give it to sean Penn. He did a pretty good job on Into the Wild.
