Filmmaker Jon M. Chu, the man behind movies like G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the upcoming Crazy Rich Asians, is reportedly planning a second movie based around the rescue of the soccer boys trapped in Thai caves. The news comes just days after the rescue of the last boys and the announcement that Pure Flix Entertainment, the people behind faith movie God’s Not Dead, were to bring a feature based on the event to screens.

Cho took to Twitter this week to announce his intentions.

“I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story! No way. Not on our watch. That won’t happen or we’ll give them hell. There’s a beautiful story about human beings saving other human beings. So anyone thinking about the story better approach it right & respectfully,” he said.

The young soccer players and their coach went missing back on 23rd June but were found, stuck in a maze of caves underground. With all of the boys unable to swim, experts were pulled in from all over the globe to assist with heir rescue. One diver was tragically killed in the efforts to bring them out.

Variety reports that Chu is ‘currently in talks with the most senior officials in Thailand, both on provincial and national levels, about the rescue project. The company is also currently in talks with multiple studios that have shown interest in this project.’

More as it comes in.
