With a real-life catastrophe at its center and a November 13 release date, Patricia Riggen’s Chilean mining drama “The 33” seems to be gearing for an awards-season run.
And now comes news that the studio to shepherd the Antonio Banderas vehicle through the maze of handshakes and luncheons that is awards season will be Warner Brothers.
“The 33” chronicles the 69-day struggle to rescue 33 Chilean miners trapped nearly half a mile underground in the aftermath of a mine collapse.
Riggen previously directed “Girl in Progress” and “Under the Same Moon.” Juliette Binoche co-stars.
