With Thai team freed, Hollywood looks to movie
The dramatic rescue of a Thai boys soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave complex this week transfixed news viewers around the world for more than two weeks, and the story is already headed for a retelling by Hollywood.
Divers freed the last four of the 12 boys and their adult coach on Tuesday.
The saga is reminiscent of the 2010 rescue of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped for 69 days, a tale that was turned into the 2015 movie “The 33” starring Antonio Banderas.
Two production companies are now looking to put together movies about the Thai soccer team rescue.
