I mean, to me, being a part of this cast, being a part of this story, being a part of this movie, and working with Patricia Riggen, sharing with Juliette, Rodrigo, Gabriel Byrne, Antonio, Mario, Kate del Castillo, Was like a little dream for me. Being back in Chile for work was also wonderful because I hadn’t spent a long time in Chile, especially during the summer, for a long time ago and to come back was wonderful.

Well, I think the Chileans could watch this movie because it is a Chilean story, there is a splendid cast of actors, there is a director who dared to tell the story like she saw it. She has a personal relationship with the miners, they had a friendship and somehow she felt this commitment to telling this story. And I think that this is an emotional movie, that a lot of people around the world will find very beautiful because of the survival, the hope and faith.

I think the movie was divided in two parts: what happened underground in the mine, the 33; and what is happening above which is the family, the rescuers, the conflicts, and both things are explored.

A story that I love to tell, was that we were in the desert with this amazing group of actors, the weather was very very very hot in the middle of the summer, and at our side were a lot of extras from Copiapó and other places, and in these groups were a lot of people that work as miners, people who have been in the mines before, underground. Their wives at the time had to recreate certain scenes that were not so necessary be in one place, The only thing we had to do was see their faces when Patricia explained what the scene was about and they somehow revived what they lived [through], so it was an emotionally strong subject because we were constantly relating the story of death versus life, the hope, the faith, and I think at the end it was like a little miracle. So it’s the story of this miracle and everything that happened when we come to a miracle: the loss, in one moment we lost all hope and we saw this constantly and at the same time, all life signal or all the possibility is a celebration. So for us, it was a complicated topic with a constant work on the emotional.

(About if was necessary to have more Chilean cast since it’s a Chilean story)

Actually no, and I’ll tell you why… They weren’t hired because they are Chileans, but because they are such a good actors and in Chile we hired Chilean actors Pauli García, Cristian Campos, and  Alejandro Goic so it [turned out that] a lot of Chilean people got roles for the movie and it was shocking. In certain way it is a movie that came from Hollywood, it’s a story narrated from Hollywood but is a Chilean story that aims to be told to everyone… that is was an international event, moving around the world, that everybody knew about, and Hollywood took this and says “We have to tell this”. And they did, in their way, obviously, and with a director that somehow never got carried away with the Hollywood ideas; she also has  given her touch as Mexican and Latina, she concentrated on protecting this movie.

This is not a complaint, but the people will understand how they live and how they are exposed. This kind of job it’s not easy, it’s hard, it’s a job where there are sacrifices, where they are risking themselves constantly. We had a premiere for the 33 in Copiapó, where we showed them the movie privately, and I talked with a lot of them, and a lot of them keep working as miners, exposing their lives, and we say “How?, How after this accident they are still working there?” but they ARE MINERS, that’s the world they know, I mean, they have an incredible bravery, and maybe some of them are very shy, but they all also macho, brave.

[Most] important is that this movie is based on real facts and some characters were combined to tell the different stories through one character. The events are real and a lot of these characters aren’t created, they are real people but the stories are crossed to tell more, and obviously because then we would be showing a story that is eighteen hours and [because] this is a movie, it has to be told in two hours.

How she lived this event watching in the US

I was in Los Ángeles, California, working on NCIS. I was at my home which was during that time under construction and I was in a room at the end  [that was] very dark and I had only a TV and I was sat on a sofa with a blanket because it was pretty cold. I started watching this rescue towards the end because that was what everybody saw, the [everyone] followed all this, especially when they (the miners) were found, and the minute of the rescue I think the people just stared at the screen because it was amazing to see [the miners] come out after all this time [and everyone] watching them through these little cameras…they all were very famous. I teared up, I remember some friends from Chile calling and saying: “Hey, are you watching the TV?” Of course I am watching the TV. The next day I remember [that] I woke up very early in the morning to go to set and I remember I came in, and the Executive Producers came up to me [saying] “Grande Chile” and I felt incredibly proud because these people are so American and knowing that they stayed watching it till late is very shocking.

In August “The 33” will arrive in movie theaters, a film that rebinds this country an actress of Chilean origin, but who has made her entire career in the United States. A film she made a short time after leaving “NCIS”, the successful series that made her famous all over the world.  Here, she explains why she does not regret doing so.

Cote de Pablo (35) asks if “here” the custom in greeting is with a hand or a kiss.  An assistant explains. There are only 15 minutes for the interview.  It is literally timed with a watch. Everything that surrounds her resembles that of a Hollywood diva, but a pair of gestures contradict: she carries a brown shawl for the cold and a bottle of water with herbs.

The daughter of the ex presenter of the Festival de Viña del Mar (Vineyard of the Ocean Festival) Maria Olga Fernandez, left Chile when she was 9 years old, but returns regularly to visit friends and her mother, who returned some years ago. The last time she stayed four months, but combined family with work: she filmed the movie “The 33”, produced by Mike Medavoy, that premieres the 6 of August. In it, the actress portrays Jessica Vega, the wife of miner Alex Vega, who in the movie is played by Mario Casas. It is a feature film with high pretensions and budget that include a cast of Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, Rodrigo Santoro and Gabriel Byrne.

The great scene with De Pablo in the movie is when she sings “Gracias a la vida” (Thanks to life) by Violeta Parra, during a moment in the story when the majority has lost hope that they will find the 33 men in the San Jose mine alive.

-It is an emotional scene, with a song that means a lot to me, because I was supposed to sing it at the funeral of a person that I loved very much. That person asked me to sing it, but I could not grant that wish because of emotional reasons. I was never able to sing it nor hear it, so when they told me they were thinking of including this song in a scene I froze. I had to get used to the idea because a job is a job.

For Cote de Pablo this is her first filming in Chile. She says she knows various directors, like Matias Bize, Pablo Larrain, and Matias Lira.

-Obviously I would like to film a Chilean movie, the doors are open, provided that there is an entertaining, interesting project that one likes. But I think that it is something that will come with time, and now there is time- because for many years I didn’t have it- to take steps to different things- she recognizes. And when talking about “having more time” she refers to her leaving “NCIS”, where she worked for 10 years in the role of Special Agent Ziva David, a series she left a year and a half ago.

-Filming [the show] was very demanding. I worked 12 and 17 hours daily, I was exhausted on the weekends. And that is what I did for a decade. It was a wonderful experience, from a professional standpoint, working withgringos that functioned in a machine that runs a thousand miles an hour. “NCIS” gave me many things- she says.

After her exit, the media began talking about an eventual return as an invited actress (guest star). She doesn’t close the door.

-Provided that the return is a good one, that is worth it. If it’s not sustained*, why go back?

Outside the promotion of “The 33”, the actress is considering for new proposals. In April a biblical miniseries named “The Dovekeepers” (based on the novel by Alice Hoffman) premiered in the USA and recently dissolved a labor contract that would have demanded several months.

-For me, leaving “NCIS” was not an easy decision. It was a decision that I thought long and hard about and at the end I had to decide not to renew for personal reasons. But leaving the series was the right decision. What’s more: I left the show in its peak, at the time it was still number 1, with 20 million viewers a week.

Rootlessness. Even though she left Santiago at 9 years old, Cote de Pablo says that the experience of leaving Chile was complicated.

-When I was a child it was very difficult, I have to say between 10 and 16 I felt very strange, culturally speaking. I grew up in Miami and for me it was always a strange place. I felt Chilean, I missed it very much, I wanted to see my friends, my grandmother, I missed my house. And I stayed, I kept studying, I started to study theatre, I started to feel much more American, but still international. I love to travel, I feel very free in the USA. Returning to Chile is incredible, but at the same time…(makes a sound of suffocation).

With a career established in mostly TV, Cote de Pablo has had the opportunity to play roles where the origin doesn’t weigh upon her the moment she gets the role. A weight that the most actors in the US have to carry with such examples such as Antonio Banderas himself or Sofia Vergara.

-I am latina, but I don’t go around saying where I’m from, because before all I am an actress.  Like I express myself equally in both languages, it is difficult to label me because I don’t do it. My career is based on doing characters that are not latinos. To this day there are a lot of people that don’t know I’m Chilean. But I am proud of being in this film.

Cote News, Movie News, The 33  •  By  •  0 Comments

The Chilean who has settled in the United States debuts on the big screen in the movie about the miners of San José, that arrives to local theaters on August 6th.
 

Cote de Pablo begins to laugh. The actress is seated in a lounge in a Mariott hotel to talk about The 33, a movie about the rescue of the miners who were trapped in the mine in San José, and right now remembers an important part in the preparation for her role in the film: “I had to eat, unfortunately,” she comments between laughter, and explains: “My character is a woman who is pregnant, so I had a little physical preparation like having extra weight and things like that, that which always is enjoyable for an actor. Because I can’t look like an anorexic with a little bump, it’s not normal.”

 

Clearly, this was not the most interesting part of the film that has Chile at the center of the tragedy. De Pablo is representing Jessica, the wife of the miner Alex Vega, who is played by Spaniard Mario Casas. Her character is one that gathers the stories of various spouses of the miners and converts them into one. The role arrived in De Pablo’s life when she left her protagonist role as Ziva David on NCIS, the most watched TV drama in the United States.

“As an actress, and more than anything as a person, it was an experience of healing that was quite significant. I had left a series, I had left a quite important thing, a very big phase of my life. This movie came a little out of nowhere. I was on vacation and I believe that in some form or another it had been manifested, it had been ordered. And overnight I found myself working with people whom I have admired all my life,” says the actress about a group of people with whom she shared a hotel for two months, an experience that generated tight relationships.

“I got to share with Juliette (Binoche), Gabriel Byrne, Rogrigo Santoro, Kate del Castillo, and (the director) Patricia Riggen. So, we saw each other every day in the morning, eating breakfast… and many days that we were not working. There was a common experience between everyone, it gave us all something very rich. We could speak of life, analyze things, share, laugh, cry: it was very beautiful,” she relates.

The project attracted De Pablo not only because it meant a big screen debut—besides that, it was because it is the story exposed, and the fact that it’s about Chile, the country that she left when she was only ten years old.

Along with this, she likes that there is a large cast and that, despite there being big stars, all of the characters tell a part of this fictional version of what occurred in the mine and on the surface: “Everyone gives information of the story that is connected internationally, and everyone has a key role in telling certain things. This is the part that I like the most. It is not that one person had to carry the film: there are various people that have wonderful moments and this is very special.”

About her part in NCIS, she believes that all of the transitions are for the best despite the difficulty: “They were difficult decisions, meaning to leave a family, a cast; it was to leave in some form or another an incredible security. It was to leave the number one series in the United States, with 20 million viewers. It was to leave the fans. I will never forget the fans, I always felt the affection, always felt the support.”

After her departure, she was part of the miniseries “The Dovekeepers,” a story of Jews set little time after Christ. She admits that she has taken her time in choosing roles and that this has to do with her work on NCIS, something that gave her “fantastic stability.” To that respect, she explains: “I had one of those little fortunes of the world; I worked a long time and I could give myself the pleasure of waiting  for things that could be interesting. For me, an interesting role does not have to be a protagonist role and no less—I only need to move the heart.”

Did you feel a lack of appreciation at NCIS?

I always felt appreciated, I always felt wanted. This wasn’t a problem. I believe that there comes a time as an actress in which one wants to do other things, and one encounters fear, obviously, of leaving stability and taking the plunge and saying “okay, now what?” I believe that you have to face your fears. You have to face the question of “What will come? I don’t know.”

Do you feel that this movie is a springboard for other interesting work?

I don’t know if I take roles because they are going to bring other things. I, at this moment, am experiencing a period of incredible tranquility. If wonderful things happen, fantastic. I do not believe that it is important to say: “This is the only thing that I am going to do in life.” Because I have also done other things, I have had a very rich career, and if at some time I change my mind, I am not going to have any problem. If it is that at some time I say, “I met the person of my life and I want to have children,” and if I separate myself from this reality for some time, I want to be consistent with that which I am thinking in this moment.

Then, the possible consequences of taking your time do not frighten you?

No fear, no fear.

Cote News, Movie News, The 33  •  By  •  0 Comments

Simple and spontaneous , hard to believe that this 1.70 meters tall woman with thick eyebrows, deep black eyes and an infectious laugh is the most successful Chilean actress in Hollywood. A few days ago she was in our country to accompany the mexican Patricia Riggen, the director of the film The 33 (based on the dramatic experience of the miners of Atacama) to present exclusively to them the finished film, with Antonio Banderas and Juliette Binoche as protagonists, and in which María José de Pablo (35 ) will have the role of Jessica Vega , the wife of trapped miner Alex Vega (Mario Casas) , who took charge of organizing the camp Hope above ground. Cote also is the voice of the song “Gracias a la Vida” that accompanied the production; a tribute to Violeta Parra.

“It was very emotional,” she says of the meeting with the 27 miners who came to the meeting. “They had not seen the finished film, they were nervous, they didn’t know what they would find. Also, it meant to relive that experience that was so intense, physically and spiritually. Many were excited, others stood and let; there were also those that contained themselves. Remember they are very “macho” men…” says the actress about this experience with The 33 that is not only  professionally for the first time to Chile, but is also an opportunity to break into Hollywood film after eight years of a successful career on American television as the Israeli agent Ziva David on the series NCIS. The show is watched by twenty million viewers each week, and its character not only made Cote a millionaire (she ended up earning $ 120,000 per episode), but also catapulted her to fame, in 2011 becoming the second most popular actress on TV according to a study by Q Score. That same year, she also won the Alma prize in the category “favorite actress” in a dramatic role.

It is a brilliant end to a story marked by the effort and perseverance that began at age 10 when Cote went to live in Miami with her parents—businessman Francisco de Pablo, the presenter of the Festival de Viña, and Maria Olga Fernandez, who later would separate—and her younger siblings, Pancho (a DJ) and Andrea (a designer), who now live in Miami and Los Angeles.

For Cote, it was a change of country and also of life; a jump from the conservative Catholic environment that was the Villa Maria to finish at New World High School, with an education very similar to that of the series Fama, complete with actors, musicians, dancers—very hip! There, she not only left behind prejudice, limits, and intolerance, but also gave free rein to her artistic side to make way for the woman she is today: free, direct, uninhibited, and passionate. “That was my first encounter with my tribe, with people who spoke my language ,” recalls the actress who went there for an acting workshop. She later went on to refine her skills at the school of the arts at the University of Carnegie Mellon, graduating in Theatre and Musical Theatre.

At 18, with a TV program under her belt, she left to try her luck in New York. She settled in Brooklyn, in a tiny apartment in a modest neighborhood. While waiting for her big break, she worked for years as a waitress in Indian and Italian restaurants, recorded commercials, participated in the series The Jury and the musical Mambo Kings, and finally touched the sky with NCIS as Ziva David helped her achieve all of the accolades, fame, and money that an actor could dream for… However, after eight years, in 2013 she decided to end her participation in the series, leaving millions of viewers affected by her departure with no real explanation, and only now, Cote it is ready to clarify . “Yes, it was a dream I lived for eight years; I did, I reached certain goals and and certain places… But at some point you have to ask yourself, ‘Does this make me happy?’ Happiness is tied not only to economic success; It is broader, related to strong emotional processes that you must experience in order to grow. I put together several things, many personal. It was what had to happen; in the last minute of negotiations it was all very clear to me, and it was easy to leave TV ”.

What answer did you find when you asked yourself if you were happy?
That I was missing things live. I spent eight years on a set, from twelve to seventeen hours a day , Monday through Friday. There was no time to process life, to understand what happened with my partner, if he was happy, why I missed my parents so much and why after recording a scene I felt low, like I was running on empty. In the world of success, when you’re at the top you can unbalance everything, but many realize too late, when the costs are high. For me, my health, my family, and my emotional stability are essential. It was a moment of questions and decisions, asking whether I was willing to work two more years to gain everything I could. The most important thing was to content myself with the determination it would take…

Do you regret it?
-I don’t have any regrets. The first gift was wondering what I would do, and the first thing was to travel. I went to the Amazon (Ecuador), I went to the rivers, talked with the natives, I reconnected with nature. I felt like I was in Avatar! Wonderful, pure green trees. Upon my return to New York where everything is gray, I began to think, to wonder what was happening in my life, what my heart wanted. Exactly the first of January of 2014 I got the offer to work on The 33. It was special because four months before I had written several times: ‘I want to work on a film outside the country, in a secondary role, with people I admire; to spend a summer in Chile and be with my grandfather on his birthday.’ The most amazing thing was that we finished recording on March 13 , the day before his birthday. I could not believe it—everything fell into place!

What have you gained with this new life?
Time… The soul speaks. It is important to let go of that little voice that is logic, that always thinks of ambition, to think: ‘how could I not take it, these opportunities don’t come twice.’ It is the brain thinking, because a child who is more heart will always say, ‘I don’t want to do this because I want to play.’ My inner child was not happy with that logic part, and I can be very rational, however, I felt that I had already paid my debt, and that I had to make that child happy! I wanted to travel, to play, to be daring—and this film in Chile had a lot of this—to reconnect myself with laughter, with actors, meet new people, build strong emotional connections. Two months in the desert with Gabriel (Byrne ), Juliette ( Binoche ), Rodrigo ( Santoro ), Kate ( the Castle ), Patricia ( Riggen ) gave us all space for deep refletion. And many of these emotional processes can be felt in the film.

Why do you think they called you for the 33?
I don’t know, I still think that this came from “above”. These are things of fate, of being in a place for which they give certain connections and fit together the pieces. I had to stay in Chile, to be part of this cast. And I took the plunge without knowing the character would grow. I had to trust , and that had a lot to do Patricia Riggen. I was in Costa Rica when she called to invite me to participate , with a bad phone connection; in the end it was a monologue on her part to tell me that she was working with the miners in Colombia and to convince me to participate. She still hadn’t thought about the second part of the film that was the surface, the women and families.

How is your role as Jessica Vega?
My character unites the history of two or three wives of miners, many of whom we knew and acted as extras. They were always around, they were guides, a very strong emotional guideline from whom we took lessons. Professionally and emotionally, it was very good to be near and to share with them. It came from a world of men it was great to meet with peers. We connect ourselves in a different way, emotionally we understand each other immediately. Everyone laughed, cried, shared their experiences. I was struck by their sweetness , always smiling. Despite the unbearable heat of the desert, I never heard a complaint; they were brave, dedicated, very affectionate. I am also very much of touch, of emotion, which in America is strange.

Although she feels like a world citizen, Maria Jose still has a lot of Chile. “I am still maintaining a conservative structure in terms of my relationships. Also, I am very oriented to my friends, I love to receive them and sit and talk . In everything else, I am free! I’ve always said, I am the American dream. I came to America at age 10 with huge ideas, I never closed the doors, and although I hesitated at times, my parents and family always supported me. They never told me, “No, not this world!” ; on the contrary, ‘Cote, dream big!’, that anything is possible.

They didn’t give you a ceiling.
Never. In America you can achieve what you want. I didn’t enter the business because of my contacts. As an immigrant, I had no ties or connections , and to find a place of your own, it gives you freedom and incredible power. As nobody knows you, you can reinvent yourself 500 thousand times, and it doesn’t matter! It is a wonderful thing and a reality that you can do anywhere, but it must start on your own. I could have been loaded with tons of things that I would bring from Chile.

What was the hardest ?
What I thought was the hardest, I now remember as the most wonderful time. When I didn’t work, I lived in a studio in one of the worst neighborhoods in Brooklyn, I woke up, did yoga, went to auditions, worked as a waitress, and it was not what I wanted. Then came a stroke of luck, and I did not stop for ten years, ten years that I lost. Now, I think about when I was super happy, and I think about when I lived in Brooklyn, in that small apartment and had time to do yoga. Nobody owned me or my time.

Cote said that in her success as a child made her methodical and disciplined.“If I had a presentation or something, I woke up an hour and a half earlier stressed, anxious, and didn’t act like a normal girl,” she recalls.

Newly single after years in a relationship with the Ecuadorian actor Diego Serrano (he has participated in American telenovelas and the movie The 24 Hour Woman) with whom she shared a home in Los Angeles, the actress travels to Chile whenever she can and takes refuge in the house her family has in Zapallar, although today only her mother lives there. She says that with time, she started to rid herself of the prejudices of our own idiosyncracies, to reach that freedom that she speaks of today. “When you realize that which you carry does not matter to you, you are going to let it go. For that you must be aware of it. One of our typical prejudices is “it’s what people say.” I have a big, conservative family, but they know I’m more liberal and we want the same things, despite our differences.

When you come to Chile, how do you see the country?
There are certain things and people that do not change, and you want them as they are. They maintain that which is familiar, which I love, Sunday lunches that that I do not see so much in the US, where I live a more solitary life; that’s what I miss. I am struck by Santiago, and also how it has grown, the number of buildings and constructions on these wonderful houses in neighborhoods like Providencia, awful!

How does family work with your parents and siblings scattered around the world?
Difficult. All of us are going on a trip to Italy. We rented a lovely home. We do family to the extent that we can.
And society, is it very different?
Yes, freer, less prejudice to speak the truth. Especially the young, and it is because they are open to other things today.

Did it hurt your ego be so successful and so little known inside your country?
No, and I understand. I was very focused on my work, I had no time to come to Chile, not even go to parties. I could not leave my work. My only free time was two weeks in December, and started coming to our house on the beach. I liked that here they didn’t know me, I could be left in peace, although I don’t deny that I love when someone approaches me and says, ’ You’re the actress that is doing things in Hollywood, my children are fans of your series.’ This makes me proud! It is different when an American says this than someone from Santiago. In the United States also I had a quiet home life, if I could skip the parties and red carpets , I jumped at it! I was tired, with a tough schedule. I gave myself over to the difficulty, there was no room for anything else.

Now with The 33 , do you aim to break into Hollywood film?
I have big dreams, and I’m willing to accept whatever comes on stage, screen , tv. That which is creative motivates me, any character that moves me. Although after such a long television contract, I confess that I am really attracted to film, because they are stories told with maximum intensity but in a short time. And that, at this point, is very attractive.

Are you interested in Chilean cinema?
I’ve always said that the doors are open for any market when the work is creative and with a seductive story. Currently Chilean cinema is going up, with internationally recognized people. There is so much talent here, it’s things like this that open it a little more in order for this industry to skyrocket.

With which Chileans would you like to work ?
There are many entertaining people, with Pablo Larrain would be fantastic, Matías Bice,  Matias Lira just released Karadima—all I want is to see it! I am connected to what happens in the national industry, observing who is doing good things. I’m curious.

What would be willing to do to get a role?
Do you mean like plastic surgery?

For example?
Are you crazy?Noo, I love how I am!

What are your limits?
I would never get an operation to get a role, if they don’t give it to me for talent, I am not interested. And I don’t know anyone from my university, friends, or circles that would do this kind of thing. To transform ourselves by gaining or losing weight, yes, this is within that which we have to do. In fact, in The 33 I have gained weight, but to get an operation for a character? Many do it; I don’t understand it.

Chilean television is at least very demanding with women, they demand they stay young and wonderful.
In issues of physical alterations, surgery is very important for women to learn to say no to. We have the power to change the perception toward us. And if there is no age on TV, it would be a crime, because TV must reflect a world that is more diverse than women between 25 and 40. If there is Barbara Walters, why must the great journalists and hosts need to come packaged in a 30-year-old body? It is unfair. In North America and other countries, the figures of TV stand for what they do, not how they look. In addition, today humans live longer, how can that not be reflected on the screen!? In the US you see beauty campaigns with Diane Keaton and others 60, 70, and it is because they realized that there is a market with great purchasing power. Not seeing them does not mean they cease to exist. And those in charge of programs and soap operas should have this strong female presence because we are living longer, getting better and more magnificent. If we are aware of this and we make a decision, we can transform public consciences and generate great changes.

Apparently you are passionate about this subject.
I am optimistic, and I insist, we have the power to change the world. There are many women who make decisions based on if equal treatment doesn’t exist—I’m not interested! These large differences given to us in the Arab and African world, for example, can be changed in a generation. How? mothers should transform their thinking , and raise their children so that they respect and look at each other as equal. They have this incredible power when raising their children.

And are you going to be a mother?
The children will come when they are ment to come. It is a pending design. I know what it is to belong to a family, but I have to have all of the pieces and the right person. Meanwhile, I wait. Like I said, there are things that are of destiny, in which certain forces come together and assemble the pieces.

Alcon Entertainment has acquired North American and the majority of international distribution rights to Chilean mining rescue drama “The 33? and set a Nov. 13 release date in the U.S. through Warner Bros.

“The 33,” based on the 2010 Chilean mine disaster, is directed by Patricia Riggen (“Girl in Progress”) and stars Antonio Banderas, Juliette Binoche, Mario Casas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Gabriel Byrne and James Brolin.

Mike Medavoy, who lived in Chile for 10 years, developed the project in cooperation with the miners, their families and rescuers, and produced the film with Robert Katz (“Crash”) and Edward McGurn.

The film tells the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped for 69 days more than 200 stories underground, enduring 100 degrees Fahrenheit beneath a megaton boulder twice the size of the Empire State Building. The film was shot in real working mines in Colombia and Chile and represents the longest underground survival story in history.

Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas wrote the script, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book “Deep Down Dark” by Hector Tobar, the former Los Angeles Times bureau chief in Argentina and Mexico. The book has been nominated for a National Book Critics Circle award.

Medavoy brought the project to Alcon. The deal was negotiated by Scott Parish of Alcon and Scott Edel of Loeb & Loeb on behalf of Alcon and by Bruce Tobey of O’Melveny & Myers on behalf Medavoy and Phoenix Pictures.
