The story of the Chilean miners who were trapped underground from more than two months is headed for the big screen.

It was announced Monday that the 33 miners have sold the rights to their story to producer Mike Medavoy. “Motorcycle Diaries” screenwriter Jose Rivera is set to write the script, with production scheduled to begin next year.

The film will recount the remarkable plight of the miners who were trapped for 69 days after the gold and copper mine they were working in collapsed.
