Director Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband, The Deep) may have rounded up a group of doomed mountaineers.  According to Deadline, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jason Clarke are in talks to star in Everest.  The film is based on the disastrous 1996 expedition that left eight climbers dead, and was chronicled in Jon Krakauer’s excellent non-fiction novel, Into Thin Air.  This adaptation will reportedly be “be sourced from various books and interviews with survivors.”  One of the fascinating aspects of the climb is that it claimed both novice and experienced climbers, and I’m curious to find out if the actors are playing real people or amalgams.

Earlier this year, we reported that Christian Bale was going to play the lead role, but Deadline makes no mention of him, so presumably he’s out.  The production is eyeing a November start date.  It’s also worth noting that there’s another Everest movie in production (also titled “Everest”) with Doug Liman attached to direct, but we haven’t heard anything new on the project in almost a year.  That movie is about George Mallory, and his three attempts in the early 1920s to become the first man to climb the world’s highest mountain.

    Never seen Jason Clarke before.. I’m wondering if he had to work on it, or it’s a natural gift to have the most annoying face ever..

      He is a great actor…. He was in Zero Dark Thirty, White House Down, Lawless, Gatsby. Definitely been steadily working over the past few years. This picture looks out of date too.
