Brad Pitt's company makes multi-million dollar offer to Chilean miners

Even before the recent rescue of the 33 trapped Chilean miners, there was talk of their story being made into a film. So it's no surprise that multiple production companies are trying to get the rights to the story. Among them: Brad Pitt's company, Plan B. A lawyer for the miners told Santiago news outlet El Mercurio that Pitt's company has made a multi-million dollar offer, and that some of the rescued miners would be cast in the film. 

According to the report, the miners are fielding an average of 10 proposals per day, and before they accept any offer, want to form a holding company so that proceeds can be equally distributed to all the miners.

Plan B recently produced "Eat, Pray, Love," and "Kick-Ass." Reps for Plan B weren't available for comment.
