The Miner Movie Is Being Made!

| Filed under: Film FlickersEtc.Inspiration

Chilean Miner Movie

Remember when we watched the rescue of 33 Chilean miners after they endured 69 days of being trapped underground?

Well producer Mike Medavoy was so touched by the story, he went after the story rights and succeeded.

The pen behind Motorcycle Diaries, Jose Rivera, will adapt the movie, which is set to begin production sometime next year.

Medavoy seems super excited about this:

Like millions of people around the world, I was completely engrossed watching the rescue at Copiapo. At its heart, this is a story about the triumph of the human spirit and a testament to the courage and perseverance of the Chilean people. I can't think of a better story than this one to bring to the screen.

We agree. This is a great story to put on the big screen.

Hopefully they can do it justice, but we don't doubt it.
