Real Life connections Lost, Amelia Earheart, Find815

Thanks to Sawyer840 for the following.

A Canadian production company next year will shoot on Oahu The Story of Amelia Earhart biopic starring Academy Award-winning actor Hilary Swank. The film is produced by Toronto-based Don Carmody and directed by Philip Noyce who scouted locations here in October. The feature film will shoot in Toronto for eight weeks possibly beginning in February, followed by two weeks each in Nova Scotia and Hawaii. Ron Bass wrote the screenplay. The famed American pilot went missing over the Pacific in 1937 while attempting to fly solo around the globe. Director Noyce said he cast Swank as Earhart in part because the resemblance is remarkable. “It’s happening,” Swank said in a recent interview. “I start doing my research in January. It’s my next project.” The script reportedly does not offer any solutions to the mystery of the aviator’s disappearance. Swank said the writer’s strike may delay the start date since the script is not completely finished. Expect more casting news in the next month…

Did anyone else see the new Missing Piece? Think it's a coincidence they brought back Amelia? I don't! :P

Yeah, I dunno about the theories that Amelia is THE Amelia Earheart. I think it's a shoutout to Amelia Earheart's mysterious disappearance and the general mystery of the Island. I don't think that's ACTUALLY Amelia Earheart talking to Jules.

I'm interested to see if Disney/ABC has anything to do with the release of the Amelia E. Movie.

And which missing piece was referred to in lieu of this posting. The Jin on the golf course. What does that have to do with it.

Jin on the golf course isnt the last "missing piece" the latest one features Amelia and Juliette in otherville when Jules burns her hand on the muffins.

The last mobisode was supposed to come on the episode, but was cut out. So it was not made for this, it was already done for season 3 premiere.
