Thai Boys in High Spirits Following Cave Rescue

Thai Boys in High Spirits Following Cave Rescue

The head of a Thai navy SEAL diving team that helped lead 12 boys and their soccer coach through a flooded cave complex to safety urged the boys on Thursday to "make the most" of their lives and be a force for good.

There's no word yet on when any of the two films will go into production but it seems like both directors and film production companies want to create a story about the Thai cave rescue mission that had us all glued to our seats.

Footage released by the SEALs showed parts of the rescue operation that captivated the world.

"We gave them a little bit of extra light, they still had light, they looked in good health". It's an hour north of the biggest city and global airport, Chiang Rai, in the northernmost part of the country near the border with Myanmar.

The area is largely undeveloped with only limited tourism facilities.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters today that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate. "An interactive database will be set up". "It will become another major attraction for Thailand".

Rescuers had weighed up several options to save the boys, including keeping them in the cave through the months-long monsoon season.

Yesterday's operation, which took the tally of those rescued to eight, was two hours faster than Sunday's efforts.

The plans laid out in a 98-page government paper give Britain's most detailed answer yet to the question of what will replace it. Trump as a baby and they've already declared victory by noting that the President is largely avoiding London during his visit.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story!"

Schnauer said once all the boys were out of the cave, everyone was very happy but also keen to get out of the cave. Ivanhoe Pictures President John Penotti announced that they are in negotiations with Thailand's Navy and government to develop the film.

United States media quoted the company as saying the film would be directed by Jon M Chu. It is the co-producer of the upcoming film "Crazy Rich Asians", based on the novel by Kevin Kwan and directed by Chu.

Concerns are already being raised on social media that the movie could be "white-washed", focusing more on the worldwide characters while downplaying the role of Thais.

"All we could think about was how we were going to get them out, so there was relief tempered with uncertainty", he said.

"There's a attractive story about human beings saving other human beings".

Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23. They were able to check the watch for the time for the first three days.
