Rosamund Pike Might Join Charlie Hunnam In THE MOUNTAINS BETWEEN US
There is already strong Oscar buzz for Rosamund Pike's amazing performance in David Fincher's Gone Girl. She's already getting high profile offers as Deadline reports Pike is circling the female lead in The Mountains Between Us. The romantic survival thriller already has Charlie Hunnam set for the male lead. I'm sort of digging the premise of the film and it could be on par with The Grey if handled properly.
A harrowing tale of survival and a love story. Ashley is a writer catching a flight from Salt Lake City and heading East for her wedding. Ben is a doctor returning from a medical conference. When their flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer, the strangers agree to charter a ride, only to see the pilot suffer a heart attack and crash into a desolate snowy mountain region. He breaks ribs and she suffers a leg fracture. Fortunately, aside from a doctor he’s an avid climber, and as he struggles to get her down from the mountain in harsh weather, she begins to realize that maybe she was headed to marry the wrong guy.
