The Thai boys' soccer team might have only just been rescued from their ordeal in a cave, but already there are two movies about what happened in the works. One will be helmed by Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu, who was equally quick to promise via Twitter that the film won't be white-washed.

Variety reports that Chu is teaming up on the movie with Ivanhoe Pictures, which is in contact with senior officials in Thailand about the rescue. The company is also talking to multiple movie studios interested in the project.

The other movie will be by the Christian-focused film studio, Pure Flix Entertainment, which announced its project via Twitter. The company's managing partner Michael Scott enthused about the event in the attached video, stating that Flix feels the movie has the potential to inspire millions.
