The trapped Chilean miners and their miraculous rescue have made international headlines. And so has one interesting associated little drama: that of the Chilean miner whose wife and mistress were feuding above ground as he was waiting to be rescued beneath it. It just screams for a movie to made, doesn’t it? And like all movies, the actors who play the real people will be younger and more beautiful. A few ideas on who should play Yonni Barrios, his wife and the mistress:
Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Lopez could vie for the wife and mistress roles.
Eric Bana, Marc Anthony and Antonio Banderas can duke it out to play Barrios.
What would really be an interesting twist is if Lopez got the wife role, Marc Anthony landed the husband role, and Marc Anthony actually cheated during filming with the actress cast as the mistress. I’m just sayin’… OR, if everyone involved has a sense of humor about the situation, Brad Pitt can play the miner, Jennifer Aniston the wife and Angelina Jolie the mistress. Any other ideas?
