Boyle to Put In 127 Hours


As anticipated, Danny Boyle will follow last year's Slumdog Millionaire with a movie about Aron Raltson, the mountain climber who amputated his own arm with a dull knife in 2003 after it became pinned under a boulder for five days. The film will reunite Boyle with Slumdog's creative team (Simon Beaufoy is in talks to write the script, Christian Colson will produce) and may star Ryan Gosling, though nothing's been made official. The working title is 127 Hours, but we suspect Fox Searchlight will ask him to edit it down to two. [BFDealMemo/Variety]
