About Thirteen Lives:
Ron Howard is set to direct from a script by Oscar-nominated Gladiator writer William Nicholson about the rescue of a dozen members of the Wild Boar soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand. The movie is a co-production of Imagine Entertainment, Storyteller Productions, and Magnolia Mae.
MGM acquired the rights to the movie. Film Group President Pamela Abdy released a statement after reportedly aggressive bidding for the production.
“The Thai families, government, and a community of farmers and neighbors who came together to support a global group of rescue divers to aid in the recovery of 12 fearless young men and their coach was an extraordinary act of teamwork. MGM is deeply honored to be a part of this project with Ron, Brian, Karen, P.J., Gaby and to share with audiences everywhere the incredible real-life story of people working together to reunite the 13 with their families,” said Abdy.
Ron Howard said, “This film is a case study in courage and volunteerism – the courage of those who were trapped, of the divers, of the officials, and of the locals who all came together to overcome insurmountable odds while the world watched. Brian and I are excited to partner with MGM, P.J., and Gaby to bring this heroic story to audiences around the world.”
