At least some good news today. Glad to read those kids are safe, hope the others make it out too!

It's really impressive how well the rescue has gone so far. Such a shame one diver died.

The movie will be told from the perspective of a white family that was vacationing nearby...



Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone will play the Thai boys

Opening white credits over black background.... BASED ON TRUE EVENTS.

The black background fades away to reveal... JACKSON, WYOMING.

A white all-American football team portrayed by 30-something actors laugh amongst themselves while heading towards a cave...


Anyway! What's the latest update. Is there a rescue op going on right now for the remaining kids, or is it still paused?

Guys don’t be ridiculous. The film will still take place in Thailand and the boys will be Thai (played by any boys that look vaguely of Asian descent).

But the movie will be ABOUT the Caucasian American ex marine who has to lead the operation to save the kids will suffering from PTSD about the time that his wife and daughter drowned before he could save them.

Y’all really think Hollywood is going to pass on the chance to make a white savior film?

Since 4 kids still need to be rescued and the remaining divers are still there I think we should remain on topic as a sign of respect

Let’s be real. The Hollywood adaptation would feature Channing Tatum as the coach, or feature the two British divers who first located them.

Is there any foreseen complications in getting the adult out the same way as the boys have been led out? I take it he will be the last one rescued too?

was listening to NPR earlier today and they mentioned how Thailand entertained the idea of having the children stay in the cave until monsoon season is over.

at first it sounded utterly insane but on second thought, i understand why that would be brought up. perhaps they could (1) bring food and supplies to the children because this would (a) minimize diver deaths or (b) deaths of the children during the dive back. it would also (c) bring risks down to a minimal given the many variables with underwater rescues.

but ultimately these kids would be in there for several weeks, if not months. with an incident like this being so uncommon, it seems there is nothing off the table when discussing how to solve it. such a sad story.

Actually, you're 1000% right, this is the most likely movie. Also, their will be a Brit and an Aussie because Americans fucking love that accent. So Brit, American, Aussie, and a black American diver if they're feeling charitable. That's just how Hollywood works unfortunately

That was one of the first possibilities raised, but I believe the threat of complete flooding removed it as an option.

Lmao. So off topic but this is hilariously true.

And the movie will use Elons kiddie submarines.

This whole incident checks all the boxes for a drama film. The only question is the release date. :)

Once again reminding everyone to please not to turn this into an Elon Musk thread again. If you resume or participate in such a derail you will be moderated. Please also cut down on the movie adaptation talk while kids are still trapped.

Just asking for future problems. Even if it's closed, unless they can blast the entrance or something people will still go in there.

that area way in the north of Thailand might honestly need the tourism boost. It's in the mountainous jungles at the Laos/Myamar borders and tourists don't often stray much further than Chiang Mai. I understood that the kids are mostly from poor families. If they make the caves safe(r), the tourists could be a boon for the region
