Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt To Create Chilean Miner Movie?

Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B Entertainment, is in negotiations to buy the film rights to the rescued Chilean miners’ story.

A lawyer for the miners told a publication in Santiago (via TheWrap) that Plan B has made a multi-million dollar offer and that there’s potential for several of those rescued to be cast.

The lawyer added that there have been an average of ten offers per day to buy the rights to the story, but that the miners want to form a holding company to split profits evenly before they sign with a producer.

UPDATE: A rep for Plan B told EW the reports are a “huge wave of nothing. We have shown potential interest, but there have been no serious discussions.”

  • Ang’s Nanny

    Posted this too late on the previous thread so reposting here:

    Can never outdo bdj but this is my “bdj contribution” for JP fans for the day.
    http://scoop.todayshow.com/_news/2010/11/15/5468434-brad-pitts-company-makes-multi-million-dollar-offer-to-chilean-miners

    Brad Pitt’s company makes multi-million dollar offer to Chilean miners. Even before the recent rescue of the 33 trapped Chilean miners, there was talk of their story being made into a film. So it’s no surprise that multiple production companies are trying to get the rights to the story. Among them: Brad Pitt’s company, Plan B. A lawyer for the miners told Santiago news outlet El Mercurio that Pitt’s company has made a multi-million dollar offer, and that some of the rescued miners would be cast in the film.

    According to the report, the miners are fielding an average of 10 proposals per day, and before they accept any offer, want to form a holding company so that proceeds can be equally distributed to all the miners.

  • Lara

    There was tab reports saying Angie expressed interest in directing such a project, really hope it’s true.

  • yep

    let me guess- Angelina plays the one Chilean Miner’s mistress

  • Yoco

    Dang, these pathetic haters must sit around waiting for a Brad or Angie thread .I wonder what they could accomplish if they focused on something productive rather than destructive.

  • Iffy Miffy

    There was a report about her wanting to direct but anything involving these two that is coming from the papers and not directly from their mouth I take not with a grain, but with a mountain, of salt. We’ll see. He looks great btw.

  • Kiesten

    Stop hating. It seems like a great project.

  • AWHODAT

    JUST AN FYI: the words: “tab report” and “true” are never ever mentioned in the same sentence by people with an intellect, because neither can be ascribed to the other.

  • Lara

    Fyi, I am well aware that tabs are rarely true, I was just stating I hoped there was a slim possibilty it was in this case. My intellect is fine.

  • sera

    Yoko I so agree. Ande we wonder why X’s fans don’t support her. They are too busy hanging aroung trashing on Angie. She and her fans share the same limited brain power. God Bless the JP’s and proud of both of them. Brad doing his Plan B thing and Angie ding her Directing thing. Love them and love how they support ech other. Too bad haters you don’t know the great feeling when you are a Jolie Pitt fan.

  • second

    He is so disgusting!

    He is such a Ghoul !!!!!!

  • CVS

    Great project

  • WHO IS SALT ?

    What about Maniston’s production company that has the specifity of never deliver a movie ?
    .
    I thought she will jump to the project for her grand debute in directing. But i guess she isn’t bankable enough to collect enough money to overbid for this project.
    .
    Plus homegirl is so dumb that she will probably mix the locations and think it’s cabo instead of santiago. She’ll takes her itsi bitsi bikini , short dresses and high heels to direct in a desertic region and may fall into the mine hole with those stilletoes…
    .
    She is soo dumb that i may very well happen this way and she will be stuck in there alone with no eating chiken salad to be nourrish as the world will be shocked seeing her with her large chin and the ‘rachel’ put in mess saying in the camera : ‘hello, i am jennifer Aniston and i am stuck in that is uncool hole…somewhere in Mehiiiico’ …sigh…

  • j

    Grandpa Squinty looks stoned

  • Butter_Fly

    I would definitely be interested in seeing this. If they keep it real.

  • Leana

    The story is worth to be told. Love Brad

  • Lara

    @WHO IS SALT ?:
    Can you imagine? Rachel and the miners, with a “Friends” reunion thrown in for good measure.
    Brad and Angie are so far removed from all that.

    oh for the love of God! will you, for once, stop being a fool. in case you don’t understand, all the miners survived. there can be no film made without the approval of all of the men involved. if they have chosen to allow brad pitt to make a film about their ordeal then what the hell is your problem? it has nothing to do with you so mind your own business.

    The idiots almost make you want to pull your hair out, dont they? LOL. It’s scary to witness that there are adults who are this stupid and irrational, and who on a daily basis probably make decisions that impact others’ lives.

  • Elisilla

    No por favor!

    I’m tired about the miners topic. I know that there are a lot of projects about making it into a movie, first they said that Javier Bardem was going to be in one, but I don’t know. I just don’t wanna know about it!

    I’m chilean and ok, i’m happy that they were rescued, but the whole media thing makes me sick…

    But I guess that this story could make a lot of $$$ if it’s made into a movie.

    Tell that to the misable people at the lower Ninth Ward who have a home now thanks to Brad.

    Also, I didn’t know Angie & Brad are making a movie about the earthquake in Haiti. Do you know something we don’t?

    Plan C : pass this one by

  • Susan

    Man the power of Angie, just point a gun, now Brad is making a cameo in her movie. For the person that was looking for him, he was with the second camera crew filming a scene in the movie. I don’t think these two make a step without running it past each other. Who knew Brad was friends with the Director of The Tourist. I think what drive these trolls nuts is the amount of devotion they have for one another, when they husbands or boyfriends ( if they did not run them off with their nagging) don’t do anything to help them. Most of the people that are attacking them if we knew how miserable their lives are, we would pity them.

    The trolls are only physically adult. Mentally they’re stuck somewhere between 1, the waaaa waaaa waaaa stage – and 2-3, the anal stage.

  • rain

    ahahahahaah so good!! Angelina will play that chilean miner’s mistress! HAHAHA she’ll not even have to act

  • sheesh

    Next for Pitt’s production company – “The Kirstie Alley Story”.

  • Sherry

    Hey you trolls/trolettes/losers/loserettes,
    Don’t you think these guys will jump at a chance to have Pitt’s company portray their amazing story on the silver screen!! are you kidding me, it would be such a thrill to have them meet with this true A-lister in the flesh and telling him their stories. I don’t see them turning down his offer out of hand. They are probably giving it some serious consideration.

    Suck on that dimwits!!

    You’re tired about it, but if the miners can come to an agreement with Brad or another producer (I hope it will be Brad), it will be made into a movie.
    Brad and Javier Bardem, and the miners themselves in it would be nice!

  • teri

    Wow that’s pretty good news. I was actually glued till we hours in the morning watching as they were rescued. Just like that baby Jessica who fell down a deep well. I really do love good endings.

  • jaye

    No, it’s not too soon to go into talks about making it. By the time all deals are done, it will be 2-3 years or more before this movie sees the light of day. It’s a story to tell, if it’s to be made, there is no reason why Pitt shouldn’t do it.

    Plan B is a legitimate production company — it isn’t a vanity company. Makes sense that it makes a bid on one of the most newsmaking events of the year.

  • gracie

    Brad looks so content and busting with happiness. I hope he gets the project.

  • gracie

    Is it that boring on Anuston’s thread that all her loons have to descend on Brad’s new thread like pack of starved dogs?

  • AWHODAT

    Woa! Post #44 isnt mine. Its Susan’s @ #36. I was gonna repost it and make a comment, but pressed the send button too soon. Sorry Susan.

  • an oldie

    Dulcinea at JJB just posted an article saying that the news about Plan B making the miners’ movie is false. I knew it. People just insert Brad or Angelina’s name to get publicity. And guess what, Huffo posted that fake news yesterday. I didn’t go to their site, just saw the link at JJ’s bottom of the page. I think Huffo just post anything outlandish about the JPs to get the haters riled up, so to get hits from them.
