Story of First Reported Alien Abduction to Become a Movie

The story of the first widely publicized report of an alien abduction is being transported to the big screen.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gotham/Principal ("Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials") has partnered with Bryce Zabel and Jackie Zabel to adapt the 2007 book "Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience."

The Hills were a New Hampshire couple who claimed that on Sept. 19, 1961, they were abducted by extraterrestrials while returning home from Niagara Falls.

The alleged incident, which gave birth to modern UFO lore, is well-documented, as the Hills made a report to the Air Force, and were interviewed by investigators from the National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena. They also underwent hypnosis to try to recall details of the event.
