So Hollywood is already working on adapting the story of the 12 boys and their soccer coach who were trapped then rescued from the Tham Luong cave in Thailand. Going by the film industry's dubious history with these kinds of stories, I can picture them going with this cast:
The Coach: Christian Bale
Boy #1, the hyper one: Jake Gyllenhaal
Boy #2, the weird one: Johnny Depp
Boy #3, the shouty one: Gerard Butler
Boy #4, the quiet one: Joel Edgerton
Boy #5, the annoying one: Justin Chatwin
Boy #6, the funny one: Fisher Stevens
Boy #7, the one that always talks about his sister: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Boy #8, the one that confuses all the other boys: Tilda Swinton
Boy #9, the one that eats all their food: Rooney Mara
Boy #10, the one that's always forgotten: Linda Hunt
Boy #11, the one that insists he's just quarter-Thai: Emma Stone
Boy #12, the one that turns out to be an alien: Scarlett Johansson
