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.”

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Stop hating. It seems like a great project.

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.

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.

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.

He is so disgusting!

He is such a Ghoul !!!!!!

Great project

WHO IS SALT ? @ 11/15/2010 at 3:25 pm

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…

Grandpa Squinty looks stoned
