Netflix has become one of the most influential media platforms on the planet. Thousands of people have already subscribed to the streaming service instead of paying for a cable membership.

Netflix has also branched out in the creative department. They have been making their own shows and movies and many have been huge successes. Now, they are making another one.

"Netflix has announced it will join with the production company for the movie Crazy Rich Asians to make a film about last July's dramatic rescue of 12 village boys in northern Thailand who were trapped with their soccer coach in a flooded cave for more than two weeks," reported Fox.

The news doesn't surprise that many people. The Thailand cave boys were center stage around the world for weeks. Many wonder if they were ever going to make it out alive.

"Thailand's Culture Ministry in March first unveiled the deal, announced as a miniseries. Deputy government spokesman Weerachon Sukoondhapatipakat was quoted then as saying that the families of the cave survivors would each be paid 3 million baht ($94,000)," according to Fox.

The story is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. At this this time, production meetings are taking place. The movie is going to try hard to stay close to the actual events and accurately depict the incident.
