Brad Pitt, Chilean Miner Movie Producer? Plan B Reportedly Negotiating Rights

Posted: Updated:

Brad Pitt is negotiating the film rights for the Chilean miners' story, according to a Chilean paper. In addition, the Chilean miners may be negotiating roles for themselves, says the Wrap.

The 33 miners were rescued a month ago after 69 days underground, and have since been bombarded by fame, job offers, and gifts. The Wrap is reporting that the miners want to create a holding company to make sure that any profits are fairly shared between them before they sign with Plan B.

The miner's have received over 1,000 job offers since the rescue touched off an international media storm. They have repeatedly said that they would share equally any profits to come from their story. Plan B has offered "millions" for the rights to the film, according to the Guardian.
