Pure Flix Entertainment (“God’s Not Dead,” “The Case for Christ”) is reportedly seeking the film rights about the currently in the headlines effort to rescue a dozen boys and their soccer coach who were trapped deep within a submerged Thailand cave network on the Chinese border.
The near three-week ordeal prompted an international rescue effort that kept the world on edge with the last of the team to be rescued on Tuesday, mere minutes before the air pumps maintaining water levels within the cave stopped working.
The team became trapped on June 23 when rising floodwater confined them deep inside the cave. All of the boys and coach were rescued though one of the volunteers, former Sgt. Saman Kunan, died late last week during part of the rescue.
