Many thanks to some pretty courageous men and women and a wonder, an complete boys soccer staff and their mentor ended up rescued earlier this week from a flooding cave in Thailand. The tale griped news stores and audiences throughout the world, so considerably so that the money-earning prospective of this traumatic experience is currently becoming exploited.
Discovery fast-tracked a just one-hour documentary, Operation Thai Rescue, to air on Friday, July 13. In the meantime, God’s Not Dead producers leaped at the possibility to switch the tale into an inspirational characteristic movie.
But as Vulture details out, Outrageous Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu wants all people to take various seats in get to stop the whitewashing of this harrowing and heroic incident. If any movie is going to be made about the rescue, he’d probably like to make certain users of the Thai Navy SEALs are not portrayed by white actors, or even worse, Scarlett Johansson. “I refuse to allow Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue tale! No way. Not on our watch,” Chu tweeted Wednesday. “That won’t materialize or we’ll give them hell.”
