Cassian Elwes, a onetime Hollywood agent and the executive producer of the forthcoming film Lawless, never expected to have to take the law into his own hands.
On the evening of Aug. 19, Elwes boarded a Sunday night flight on JetBlue airways from New York to Los Angeles. The flight was diverted to Denver for what JetBlue told Denver’s 7NEWS that it was just a “customer service issue” — but Elwes had a darker story to tell.
In a series of harrowing tweets, Elwes detailed a flight that read like a movie thriller script: a disgruntled veteran, a brave citizen, dozens of innocent bystanders and an emergency landing.
