Movie about I-45 'killing fields' planned
Hollywood's making a murder mystery movie out of the unsolved deaths along the "killing fields" of League City's Gulf Freeway corridor.
The Fields will star Jeffrey Dean Morgan from The Watchmen and Sam Worthington of Avatar. The story was written by a former DEA agent and focuses on disappearances that include Jessica Cain, who vanished in 1997 after leaving a Clear Lake Bennigan's, and the murder of women whose bodies turned up in a field off Calder Road.
The synopsis from Variety magazine:
Morgan will star as a detective transplanted from New York, while the "Avatar" thesp will portray a local investigator probing a series of unsolved murders in industrial wastelands surrounding Gulf Coast refineries, where as many as 70 bodies have turned up over the past two decades. Together they wage a war against the unknown assailants.
According to the Galveston County Daily News:
Since 1971, 21 women and girls have been reported missing along the Interstate 45 corridor in Galveston County in cases that remain unsolved. Police have recovered the remains of 14 from fields, parks and bodies of water. Their killers remain at large.
