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!
