- The director of “Crazy Rich Asians” is in talks to make a movie about the rescue of 12 boys and their coach who were rescued from a Thai cave.
- Jon M. Chu has pledged to make a film that won’t be a “white wash,” indicating Asian actors would be front and center of his film.
- Chu said it is important this story is told “correctly and respectfully” and so that “history doesn’t get it wrong.”
There is a second film about the Thailand cave rescue in the works, this time from the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” who has pledged to not “white wash” the cast.
Earlier this week, Christian film studio Pure Flix announced it was on the ground in Thailand and seeking exclusive rights to the stories of rescuers, divers, and the families of the 12 boys and their coach who were trapped in a cave for up to 17 days. The managing director, who is married to a Thai woman who knew the former Navy SEAL that died on the mission, said it could be a movie that “inspires millions” and that he sees it being a “major Hollywood film with A-list stars.”See the rest of the story at Business Insider
