Danny Boyle’s next project will tackle Aron Ralston

slumdog-millionaire-director-danny-boyleDanny Boyle will follow last year’s Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire with a movie about Aron Ralston, 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.

I hope this project happens, not only because Ralston’s story deserves the big screen treatment, but also because Boyle’s at the top of his game and I’m sure has something interesting to offer this story of survival and determination. [via]
