Madonna ‘disposée à réaliser le film sur les mineurs du Chili’.
Madonna and Angelina Jolie are said to be in a “battle” over who will direct a movie about the Chilean miners.
The true story of the 33 men who were trapped underground for 69 days this summer before being saved by an innovative rescue capsule on October 13 has been hailed as one of the most remarkable events of 2010.
As soon as the miners had been rescued and reunited with their families there was a buzz in Hollywood over who would direct a movie based on the tale, and it has now been claimed A-list stars Madonna and Angelina are both interested.
“Development has already started on the film and Angelina and Madonna are both desperate to be at the helm,” a source told British newspaper The Daily Star.
“This story touched viewers worldwide and the film is going to be colossal. It would establish either of them as a respected film director.”
Movie insiders have suggested the job may go to coveted director Steven Spielberg, 63, but 52-year-old Madonna and 35-year-old Angelina are set to compete with him. It is thought both women have the drive and determination to succeed.
“They are both passionate women who will do anything to get ahead in the movie world,” added the source.
Angelina is currently working on her directorial debut in Budapest, a controversial film set during the atrocities of the Bosnian war. Meanwhile, Madonna has already directed several movies. Her first was 2008 comedy Filth and Wisdom, about three flatmates living crazy lives in London.
