Check your shipper fantasy bingo card, because Kate Winslet is in talks to join Idris Elba in The Mountain Between Us. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the romantic drama would star Winslet as an engaged woman who charters a plane with a surgeon (Elba) when their flight is delayed. The two then crash in the snowy wilderness and must struggle to survive. Here's betting we get some skin-to-skin contact — you know, as a perfectly innocent way to stay warm. Working off of a script by Chris Weitz, Hany Abu-Assad is set to direct the movie, which is based on Charles Martin's book of the same name. Whether you're Winslet or Elba in this scenario, the company sure beats a volleyball.
