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.”

    @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.

    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.

    If there’s a disaster the JP’s will be there pronto to capitalize on others misery.

    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?

    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.

    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!

    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 Says:

    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.

    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.
