There's something about people being trapped underground that brings in audiences in droves. When baby Jessica fell into that drain pipe in 1987 and spent over two days caught inside, everyone was glued to their sets to see if she would be freed. Just two years later, they all saw the whole story fictionalized for a television movie with Beau Bridges, Roxana Zal and Will Oldham.

Now we've got the Chilean miners, who are a group of men that were recently trapped underground after part of their mine collapsed, managing to survive for a stunning 69 days before they were rescued. Being an impressive story -- and one where everyone happened to live, which is a nice, happy-ending bonus -- Brad Pitt and his Plan B Entertainment are eager to bring the story to the big screen.
