2012 MakeMagic NEWS: We are extremely excited to announce that after a four year negotiation, we have secured the Life Rights to the incredible true story of Harvard Psychiatry professor and Pulitzer prize-winning author, Dr. John Mack whose traditional world was shattered when his study of people who claimed to be abducted by aliens led him to a shocking conclusion – they were not lying and they were not crazy. His assertion made worldwide headlines and resulted in an embarrassed Harvard launching a secret inquiry in an attempt to discredit Dr. Mack and strip him of his reputation and his tenure – a first in the university's history.
