Dan Rather says he can handle a little Hollywood interference to make a Thailand cave rescue movie, because the story is just that great.
We got the CBS News legend Tuesday in NYC hours after it was announced that all 12 boys from a youth soccer team and their coach were successfully saved from a flooded cave after being trapped for more than 2 weeks. Dan had 1 word for it this AM … any guesses?

Our camera guy also asks what he makes of Hollywood types rushing to crank out a movie about the rescue, which Dan acknowledges is definitely going on and seems to frown upon.
But, like he says … some positive news for once beats any potential exploitation. He’ll take it.
