Soon to be a Disney movie

http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/08/04/min...ney/index.html

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- The Walt Disney Co. has bought the rights to the story of the nine Pennsylvania coal miners who were rescued after being trapped underground for 77 hours.

"They have sold all of their rights," attorney Barbara L. Weiss, who represents the miners, told CNN in a telephone interview Saturday.

The Associated Press reported that each man would receive $150,000.

The men's story will be turned into a movie for Disney's ABC television network, and a book to be published by Hyperion Publishing, a division of the entertainment company, she said.

The miners were trapped July 24 in the Quecreek Mine in western Pennsylvania when flood waters trapped them 240 feet below ground.

For more than three days, they kept warm by huddling together, and shared only a corned beef sandwich and sodas.

They were pulled alive from their air pocket last Sunday after a team of rescuers bored a hole through earth and rock to reach them.

Calls to representatives of Disney were not immediately returned.

They could have gotten more money. After what those guys went through and the fact that many of them are not going to be mining anymore and have to find a new job, they should have held out for more money.
