Komolvadhin was one of the hundreds of journalists reporting on the risky rescue mission to extract the 12 members of the Wild Boars soccer team and their assistant coach trapped inside the five-mile-long Tham Luang Cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai province along the Thailand-Myanmar border.

"The bravery and heroism I've witnessed is incredibly inspiring, so, yes, this will be a movie for us", said CEO and co-founder Michael Scott, who lives in Thailand part-time and was on the scene of the rescue.

Pure Flix is said to be speaking to actors, writers and potential investors about making a film about the heroic acts.

Last week, FIFA said it would invite the group to Russian Federation 2018 as soon as they were rescued but the Thai authorities have told world football's governing body that the team will not be fit enough to travel to Sunday's game in Moscow.

The four boys rescued first are "well, they're up and about", Sky News' southeast Asia correspondent, Siobhan Robbins, said.

Twelve boys and their soccer coach were recently rescued from a Thai cave after 17 days of being trapped. They survived by drinking water dripping inside the cave.

"It's really a miracle", she said.

Thai rescuers were assisted by an worldwide team comprising experts from China, Australia, the US and Britain. A video from the Thai Navy SEAL Facebook page showed the group several kilometers inside the 10-kilometer (6-mile) cave network on a small wedge of dry ground. The boys moved 400 meters further in as the ledge had become covered by water.

The boys, all between the ages of 11 and 16, are now being kept largely in isolation to prevent infections from outsiders, AP reports, but most presented with few serious health conditions; some are beginning to eat solid food and walk around.

The rescue began on Sunday, when four boys were extracted.

"Pure Flix joins the rest of the world in thanking God for answering prayers for the successful rescue of those trapped in the cave in Thailand", the company said in a statement. An American military diver added: "Those kids were proper knocked out".

The schoolboys rescued from a flooded cave system in Thailand were dosed with an anti-anxiety drug to stop them panicking during the terrifying underwater mission, the country's prime minister has admitted.

The SEALs commander, Rear Adm. Apakorn Youkongkae, said the soccer coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, determined the order the boys from the Wild Boars soccer team should be rescued in.

"In a message posted on Twitter, the Premier League club said: "#MUFC is relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe.

There's now not one but two movies about the Thai cave rescue in the pipeline.

The video shows the boys in an isolation ward in beds with crisp white sheets and wearing green surgical masks.

He also acknowledged the loss of a former navy SEAL, Saman Kunan, who died last week while replenishing air tanks inside the cave.

California-born Chu, who has Chinese heritage, also tweeted that he will not "let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story.".
