Antonio Banderas Will Lead Chilean Miner Movie

The Chilean miners trapped underground for 69 days back in 2010 are about to get moviefied in The 33, starring Antonio Banderas as Mario Sepulveda, "the charismatic miner known as 'Super Mario.'" Mexico's Patricia Riggen (Girl in Progress, La Misma Luna) will direct, with production set to take place in Chile. What's weird is that Banderas is also making a movie called 33 Days, where he'll play Picasso.
