Director Danny Boyle Reteams with "Slumdog Millionaire" Creative Team 


Danny Boyle is working once again with Fox Searchlight and he's bringing back his "Slumdog Millionaire" creative team with him.

Their upcoming collaboration is called "127 Hours" about the real-life tale of mountaineer Aron Ralston. You may remember the name, he's the man who nearly died pinned under a boulder during a climb in Utah in May of 2003.

For five days, Ralston's right forearm was under that boulder, so he used a dull knife to amputate himself. Take a look at this video for more of Ralston's story, and then continue reading to find out who's being rumored to play him:



Boyle is set to direct the movie. Production begins early next year for a late 2010 release, just in time for the Oscar season.

The director has written a treatment, and Simon Beaufoy is negotiating to write the script. "127 Hours" will be Boyle's fifth time around with Fox Searchlight. The director and the studio teamed up before for "Slumdog Millionaire," "Sunshine," "28 Days Later," and "Millions." Wow, I love all those films!

So who's rumored to play this meaty role? Hollywood insiders are comparing this role to the one that Tom Hanks played in "Cast Away" since the character will spend most of the time alone.

And Ryan Goslin is being rumored to star but Variety tells us that nobody is set to play the part at this point.
