The jokes, moans and eye-rolls began even before the declaration — packed with joking throwing expectations on Twitter.
Here’s how the Tweeps are reacting:
"How soon is too soon to start boycotting the Hollywood movie of the Thai cave rescue starring Mark Wahlberg?”, said, Linda Ge.
"The movie of the Thai boys trapped in the cave will star Matt Damon as all of the boys", said Ketan Joshi.
"Cave rescue is going to make an incredible movie, can't wait to see Scarlett Johansson inspire in her role as 12 Thai boys”, djb.
On Wednesday 11th July, the announcement was made. The story that enthralled the world about the boy’s soccer team and their coach being trapped in a cave in Thailand is going to be a major motion picture.
Pure Flix Entertainment, the Christian film studio known for the "God's Not Dead" series, will produce it.
The makers made an announcement on the same day the last boy was rescued. The writer and director Larry Charles tweeted:
"The Thai cave rescue reminds me of a post-modern version of Billy Wilder's Ace in the Hole. You've got Elon Musk grabbing attention with shameless self-promoting, trying to shill a new product AND a movie of the saga being announced before the kids are out of the hospital."
Drudge Report tweeted, "Hollywood producers already on scene plotting Thai cave movie" - the emphasis naturally falling on "already."
The speed with which this tragedy has been dug for protected innovation, as though it were an old Marvel comic book, may appear to be tacky. Be that as it may, is anything but an especially new wonder.
Hollywood has made many movies based on the real-life incidents which include Zero Dark Thirty based on United States government’s hunt for an eventual killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and The Hurt Locker based on U.S. bomb disposal team during the Iraq War. Patriots Day was also made which was based on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, which killed three and injured hundreds more. In the movie Stronger, David Gordon Green told the story of Jeff Bauman, a man who lost his legs in the bombing and was the subject of a famous photo from the day.
Well, let’s see how the makers are going to capture this story and present it to the viewers.
