Brad Pitt's production company, Plan B, has reportedly pitched to turn the story of the trapped Chilean miners into a film.

According to The Telegraph, Plan B, is said to have made a multi-million Euro offer for filming rights to the story of 33 miners who were trapped below ground for 69-days before their dramatic rescue last month.

Executives from the firm approached the miners' lawyer, Edgardo Reinoso, according to el Mercurio, a Chilean newspaper and apparently they said they could cast some of the rescued miners in the film.

Plan B's company representative, Jon Liebman, CEO of Brillstein Entertainment Partners said: "Like so many people worldwide, Plan B has been incredibly moved by the story of the Chilean miners and their families."

However he added: "There have not yet been serious discussions."

The production company, which Pitt founded in 2002 with his then-wife, Jennifer Aniston, has been involved with several successful films including 'Troy', 'Kick-Ass', 'Eat Pray Love', 'A Mighty Heart' and 'The Time Traveler's Wife'.
