There Are Already Two Thai Cave Rescue Movies in the Works

Rescuers freed the last four boys and their adult coach from the deep flooded Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai on Tuesday, and already Pure Flix and Ivanhoe Pictures and have publicly stated their intention of telling the riveting tale.

After nearly three weeks trapped in the dark, away from their loved ones in a cave in northern Thailand, the boys, aged between 11 and 16, were allowed to see their relatives in a carefully controlled environment, as doctors are still concerned about their health. "I have to praise the coach who took care of the footballers very well", Lertvirairatanapong said.

The group ventured into the vast cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice on June 23 and were trapped when a rainy season downpour flooded tunnels.

"If it rains, the water level goes up in two hours and we can't tell what the water is doing inside, so you thought you were doing a half-hour dive and now you are doing a two-hour dive, and do you have gas for that?" The footage, released by Thai officials Wednesday, shows eight of the boys sitting up in their hospital beds, clad in hospital gowns and face masks.

"From our assessment, they are in good condition and not stressed".

The hope that the boys will stay out of the spotlight for some time was one shared by former mine foreman Luis Urzua, who was trapped in a mine in Chile for 69 days following a collapse.

Two production companies are now looking to put together movies about the Thai soccer team rescue.

The exact mechanics of the rescue bid were closely guarded during the operation, but details have since dribbled out. They would then need to recuperate at home for 30 days, he said.

Once past this stretch, they reached Chamber Three, the SEALs' main base.

Earlier on Wednesday, the head of the Thai Navy Seals told the BBC that "hope became reality" with the rescue of the boys and their coach from the Tham Luang cave.

Indeed, it was almost another week before the first of the "Wild Boars" soccer team was brought out of the cave by elite divers who had, with Thai special forces, planned the rescue meticulously - but quickly, as more rains threatened.

"It's Thai, Westerners, Europeans, Aussies - people from all over the world who helped bring these kids to safety", Scott told Reuters.

Duangduen Sittiwongsa, a classmate of 16-year-old Pheeraphat "Night" Sompiengjai, whose birthday fell on the same day the team entered the cave, said they would give him cake when he came back to school.
