Wild Boars may well need saving again
I thought we could let it rest, but apparently the post-rescue drama of the 13 cave survivors is here to stay. On Wednesday, the 13 Wild Boars members were put on stage in a live broadcast, a 6pm state-run slot usually reserved for military propaganda.
On Thursday, it was revealed that at least five foreign film producers have contacted the authorities about a possible film project based on the Tham Luang cave saga.
To ensure order, a national committee will be set up to review any film projects involving the Wild Boars. The government is reportedly considering making its own film, too.
