The moment we witnessed the safe rescue of the 33 trapped Chilean miners last month, we knew it was only a matter of time before Hollywood got their hands on the story.

Throughout the last week, rumors have been swirling around the internet that Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B, which was founded in 2002 with Pitt’s former wife Jennifer Aniston, has their eye on the film rights.

“Like so many people worldwide, Plan B has been incredibly moved by the story of the Chilean miners and their families,” Jon Liebman, Plan B’s company rep said. “There have not yet been serious discussions.”

But that isn’t the only rumor surrounding the hot topic project! Other sources claim that actor Javier Bardem may also be interested in the project and that director Antonio Recio has already begun working on the Argentinian production The 33 Of San Jose.

Long story short, whether it’s Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, or an entirely different team, we’re pretty sure that the Chilean miner movie will be playing at a theater near you very soon.
