Even though all twelve boys and the coach have only been out of the cave less than a day, a film is now in the works based on the incredible rescue at Tham Luang.
A faith-based production outfit called Pure Flix Entertainment - which made 'God's Not Dead' (14% on Rotten Tomatoes) and 'God's Not Dead 2' (8% on Rotten Tomatoes) - have announced that they are to begin work on the film in the next few weeks. In fact, Pure Flix Entertainment's CEO Michael Scott told THR that he's been on the scene near the rescue and witnessed the rescue first-hand.
"The bravery and heroism I've witnessed is incredibly inspiring, so, yes, this will be a movie for us," Scott explained, adding that "(it's) not necessary to make this a Christian film, just an inspirational one." Scott, who lives part-time in Thailand, has said that he's spoken to a number of the divers and family members of those who were trapped in the cave and will begin hiring screenwriters in the coming weeks to adapt the story into a script.
The story has already made international headlines, with the last of those trapped inside rescue only just yesterday after rising water trapped them inside.
No release date has been set for the film as of yet.
