A dramatic movie about the Lockerbie disaster is set to be made.
Producers have signed up campaigner Dr Jim Swire, who lost 23-year-old daughter Flora in the terror atrocity.
Lockerbie Productions Inc are also said to have won agreement from Peter Biddulph, who runs the Lockerbie Truth website with Dr Swire, 75.
Last night an insider said: “It’s possible Dr Swire will be portrayed in the film.
“There are plans for a moving scene with him laying flowers at his daughter’s grave.”
Producers are said to have travelled to the Cannes Film Festival to stir interest in the project at the same time as Libyan bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi died from cancer. (…)
New Yorker Peter Lowenstein, 78, who lost son Alexander, said: “People who make films about events like Lockerbie are often wackos but if this is a carefully considered look I think there would be a place for that.”
In 1998 ex-Lockerbie councillor Marjory McQueen slammed the idea but yesterday said: “If someone wants to make a film let them.”
