It has been almost a year since the now-infamous 33 Chilean miners (Los 33) were initially trapped following a mine cave-in. Their miraculous rescue after being undeground for 69 days captivated the world. Now you will never be able to forget them because Hollywood is bringing their story to the big screen. Producer Mike Medavoy, whose recent credits include Black Swan and Shutter Island, has acquired the rights to the story and Jose Rivera, the screenwriter for The Motorcycle Diaries, will pen the script.
There isn’t any news on the cast just yet. (Duh. The miners only just agreed that this is the best way to capitalize on their
notoriety inspiring story.) So we decided to predict which Hollywood actors will tackle the juiciest roles in the movie that is sure to be a winning ensemble drama.
