A MOVIE about missing Flight MH370 is in the works and could be in cinemas within months.

Rupesh Paul Productions is promoting The Vanishing Act, a film about the plane tragedy, among buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.

A poster for the movie promises to tell "the untold story" of the missing plane, but in an interview on Friday, the associate director of the movie, Sritama Dutta, said the only similarities between the thriller and the real-life disaster is that a plane is missing.

"It has got no similarities," said Dutta, adding there have been so many developments with the actual case that it wouldn't be practical to try to mirror it.

"We cannot keep up with the true facts, it's changing every day."
