The movie version of the 2010 Chilean mine collapse that trapped 33 workers for weeks has found a leading man.
Mike Medavoy recently announced at the Cannes Film Festival that Antonio Banderas is set to star in the movie.
According to Variety, the project will be called "The 33," as it dramatizes the story of the 33 mine workers whose entrapment over 69 days turned into a globally watched rescue effort.
Banderas, who will appear in this year's "Machete Kills," is signed up to play Mario Sepulveda, the miner known as "Super Mario."
Medavoy, who lived in Chile for 10 years as a kid, acquired the rights to the miners' story in 2011. He said at the time that he, like "millions of people around the world, was completely engrossed watching the rescue," and that "at its heart, this is a story about the triumph of the human spirit and a testament to the courage and perseverance of the Chilean people."
"Motorcycle Diaries" screenwriter Jose Rivera has written the script for "The 33" along with Mikko Alanne.

Glad to hear that they didn't give the part to a white dude. ATTENTION HOLLYWOOD: There is an abundance of black, latino, asian and native americans out there who are fully capable of portraying a lead role in a film. Just give them a chance!!
Nobody would go see the movie. Unless it's Denzel. Then they might go see it.
Hollywood makes movies that they think people want to see.
Is there really a need to make a movie out of that tragedy? I could see a made for tv movie, but a movie for the theaters? I watched a lot of that on the news. I just don't see the concept as a big block buster. Not only that, we already know how it will end.
We all know how the Bible ends, yet they still made a stupid mini-series about it.
stop usinng the web as a confessional booth...it does not help it just spins your head around with no conclusions–
