In 2010 an underground story was unearthed when the world found out that 33 Chilean miners were trapped 2,200 feet below the ground for 69 days. While rescuers thought of ways to bring the miners safe and sound to their families, Hollywood thought of ways to bring the story to the big screen.
“The 33” will be produced by veteran Mike Medavoy who is putting Mexican director Patricia Riggen behind wheel.
During an interview with the Daily Star, Riggen who directed “Under The Same Moon,” revealed that Antonio Banderas will star in the film although she did not reveal the Spanish actor’s role.
