Ready For A Lifetime Movie About The Chilean Miners???

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersInspiration

chilean miners rescued story of interest to media

Actually, we guess the Lifetime movie will probably be more about the wives than the miners, but fear not, because there is A LOT of interest in making this weeks rescue into a flick.

Sources are confirming that many studios are scrambling to secure the rights to the the heroic story of the 33 miners trapped and then rescued in Chile this week.

From exclusive TV interviews on major networks to major motion pictures, Hollywood is reportedly in an epic race to get to tell the story first.

But it might all be for nothing as one source is reporting that the group of miners made a "verbal agreement" early on during the ordeal that they wouldn't share certain aspects of their story with the press and that a group contract would be drafted making sure that the entire group profited from their story, no matter which individual told their story.

A united front?! How honorable! How often do you see that?!

We're just so happy to hear that they've been saved and are all safe now. Can't ask for anything more than that!

    Lifetime ? If they made a Big movie with real actors, i smell an Oscar.



  2. 2

    Btw , my last comment was basically saying, they shouldn't make a "lifetime" movie, but an actual movie.

    Already???? noooo!!! nooo!! nooo! nooo!

    An honorable front, my ass. Money talks, baby, and if one miner knows that he can make a million for a movie, versus, what just 33K if they split it 33 ways, that's all it will take. I'd say the guy who came out last has the best chance for the biggest bucks, and then maybe a few others (like the guy with the wife and mistress). But I think they will soon find out that not all miners are created equal.

    There's a rule that the media can't speak about anything that happened before day 17… so what happened, it has be something awful?!!



  6. 6

    I agree that is to soon… I hope that they investigate a little before they start, if they do it right it could be an interesting story.

    Beyond the political p.r. opportunity for the President of Chile and his wife, you could feel their genuine warmth and happiness through the tv.
    -
    It reminded me of President Bush, when he hangs out with his soldiers. Gosh, I miss him. A President who is proud of his country. How unique.
    -
    Obama's coldness and arrogance remains glaringly in place, after seeing the Chilean First Couple. Wish we could trade O & Mo for them.
    If this had happened in the U.S., the environmentalists would not allow the drilling of the escape hatch and shut down all mining!
    The lawyers would have out-numbered the press, the people working, and the relatives waiting for news!

    Thank God he shows us miracles every day but sometimes we don't recognize them as miracles. I just keep praying for our country and the LOUSY LEADERSHIP WE ENDED UP WITH.
    -
    God sometimes let's things happen so we will learn our lessons.
    God even let's the Devil win sometimes, as he did in our last election. Prayer will bring our country back to what it has always been. Zippy can't ruin our country as long as we keep God on the forefront.

    I can't believe how much they're milking this. I'm chilean and it has been 70 days with the same old news. Don't get me wrong, we're all thrilled they got them out but still, it's been too much already!



  11. 11

    regardless of what some people may say, they are a united front, they're not just doing it for the money!! they have the rest of their lives settled with all the money the company has to pay to them!

    Re: luvs2tango – Why are you in this website? I mean if you're that conservative and religious you shouldn't be in a gay blogger site. I'm not even from the U.S. but I just can't stand people like you

    What an amazing idea. The best soundtrack for this movie would include a coal miner's choir from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. They sing songs about tragedy such as this one (as well as brighter, fun songs too). Look them up - Men of the Deeps. www.menofthedeeps.com (i'm a big fan since my dad is a member!) .

    Oh, it would make an interesting story indeed! I'd like to see it too. A little tidbit one miner had a mistress and a wife with children waiting for him. Now that would be interesting. But, bottom line it was a wonderful thing seeing all of them come out safe and alive and I hope they do profit from it. Some of them they say will have health problems in the future so they will need everything they can get. So glad it had a happy ending.

    Re: luvs2tango

    I agree with everything you had to say. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the President stay there and greet each and everyone of those miners as they came out. I thought, there is no way our President would do that. He would be wanting to sue the mine company.

    I'm on this website because I'm tolerant.
    Being conservative, and a wishy-washy Easter and Christmas day Christian, has nothing to do with hating gays.
    -
    Christians don't hate gays. Another myth exploited by you Libs to conquer and divide us. We've read Alinsky and on to all your tricks.
    We are no longer quiet and yield to your tantrums and lies.

    Fascinating story but this is going to go on ad nauseum. In the end, what I'm interested in is the dynamic between some of the men and their wives and their mistresses when the money starts flying.



  21. 21

    I have no doubt it was a difficult time for everyone involved but a movie about it ? sounds really boring. They basically had nothing to do down there all that time, it was not an action packed adventure for them.



  22. 22

    I just think it is too soon to talk movie yet



  23. 23

    Now see, here you go again. Blah Blah BlaH-ing about something you know nothing about. Anyone in there right mind, who'd just gone through what they did. Would go home, keep their mouths shut, and get well. And get on with it. NOt make a profit, from a short falling.



  24. 24

    oh come on!!! you know what Perez Im chilean and i think that the idea of a movie is an insult to these people. There is nothing more absurd than Hollywood making a movie about them. What does hollywood know about my country?? absolutely nothing and im sure that they would do it all wrong.
    I think that all the media should cut the circus and leave the miners recover from all the tragedy that this accident meant for them and for their families. There is nothing heroic in being trapped for two months in a mine. There is nothing glamorous in being a miner, this is a very scarified job and very underpaid too!! this is a human drama where there is a lot of corruption and use of monetary power involved.

    and also the president of my country helped the miners to increase the country's acceptance…that is not heroic ..its politics
