Brad Pitt Interested in Rights to Chilean Miners’ Story

Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B Entertainment, has expressed interest in buying the film rights to the Chilean miners’ rescue story.
The 33 miners made headlines everywhere when they were dramatically rescued after being trapped underground for more than two months.
On Sunday, the miners’ lawyer, Edgardo Reinoso Lundstedt, told the Chilean newspaper, El Mercurio, Pitt’s company had offered millions of dollars for the rights to the miners’ story. (No one was able to confirm to Gossip Cop the claim of millions offered.)
Lundstedt also noted several of the miners might even be cast in the film, if the deal goes through.
At this point, however, there is no firm offer from Pitt’s production company.
Who would you want to see cast in the movie?
