There’s an upcoming rescue adventure film, inspired by a true story, called “Big Miracle“, which stars Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney, Tim Blake Nelson and Ted Danson.
Here’s the synopsis for”Big Miracle”:
Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.
Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.
With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.
It’s a story based on a book called “Freeing the Whales” by Tom Rose. The film is directed by: Ken Kwapis and written by: Jack Amiel & Michael Begler.
It’s produced by: Steve Golin, Michael Sugar, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Executive Produced by: Liza Chasin, Debra Hayward, Stuart Besser and Paul Green.
