Hollywood is making a movie about the rescue attempt of a cave explorer from a South Central Kentucky Cave.
The film is based off "Trapped", a book written by Robert Murray and Roger Brucker from Beavercreek, OH.
It's about the unsuccessful rescue attempt of Floyd Collins from Sand Cave near Mammoth Cave.
To write the book, Brucker sneaked into the sealed-off cave in 1977 and reconstructed the two week rescue attempt.
Seventy-six year old Brucker has written four books on caves and is a co-founder of The Cave Research Foundation.
The Paramount Pictures' film will be directed by and star Billy Bob Thorton.
