Missing in Action is a 1984 American action B-movie directed by Joseph Zito and starring Chuck Norris. The concept for the film originated from a story treatment, written by James Cameron in 1983, for the film Rambo: First Blood Part II that was floating around Hollywood at the time. This explains the similar plotlines between Rambo and MIA. Representatives from Cannon Group claimed to have been “inspired” by Cameron’s script and subsequently produced and released the first two Missing in Action films two months before the release of Rambo, in order to avoid copyright violation lawsuits.
Editors on the original were Joel Goodman and Daniel Loewenthal.
