Tom Waller to direct & adapt Thai rescue story The Cave

According to Deadline, director Tom Waller has signed on to direct drama film The Cave, yet another project based on the compelling cave rescue story that happened earlier this year in Thailand. Waller also penned the film’s script.

The Cave is a drama film about the intense and difficult rescue mission of the Wild Boars soccer team, after 12 Thai boys aged 11-16 and their coach got unfortunately trapped earlier this summer in the Tham Luang Cave in Thailand last June 23. They managed to survived for 18 long days before being miraculously rescued by a brave group of international divers. The whole rescue mission of the boys were reported and televised across the world which led to millions of people anticipating for news updates regarding the rescue.
