The directors of Free Solo are ready for another adventure. Oscar- and Emmy-winning directors Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi have joined up to direct a feature film about the 2018 Tham Luang cave rescue in Thailand for Universal and Cavalry Media, according to Deadline.
The duo will work on the project from a script by Wes Tooke, who recently wrote the war film Midway and worked on the TV series Colony and Jean-Claude Van Johnson. Dana Brunetti and Matt DelPiano are producing for Cavalry Media, while Michael De Luca will serve as executive producer. De Luca has experience behind true-life films like this one, having produced both Captain Phillips and The Social Network, both of which were nominated for multiple Oscars.
