It's been nearly six years since Emily Jones lost her husband John after becoming trapped in the Nutty Putty Cave in Utah County.

In November of 2009, Emily and John went to visit family in Utah County for Thanksgiving. While there, John went in the Nutty Putty Cave and became stuck upside down in a worm hole. Attempts to rescue John were unsuccessful.

John died in the cave. His body was never recovered.

Emily and John's story will soon hit the big screen as a motion picture. Emily and the actress Alexis Johnson, who will play Emily in the film, were in studio to talk about the movie.

The film is anticipated to be released in 2016.
