There Are Already Two Thai Cave Rescue Movies in the Works

The Thai Soccer Team Cave Rescue Will Be the Subject of Two New Movies!

Filmmaker Jon M. Chu, motivated by his film Crazy Rich Asians, isn't willing to let Hollywood whitewash the story about the Thai cave rescue mission.

There is a second film about the Thailand cave rescue in the works, this time from the director of "Crazy Rich Asians" who has pledged to not "white wash" the cast.

Jon is reportedly already talking to Thai senior officials about the project.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story! No way. Not on our watch", he wrote. "That won't happen or we'll give them hell", Chu tweeted, adding it's "a handsome story" about human beings saving other human beings.

The other movie will be by the Christian-focused film studio, Pure Flix Entertainment, which announced its project via Twitter.
