Scriptwriter Simon Beaufoy Reveals "127 Hours" Secrets! Check Out Our Interview! 


Simon Beaufoy won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2009 for “Slumdog Millionaire.” This year, he reteams with “Slumdog” director, Danny Boyle, for another thought-provoking and captivating film! I love this movie!

Based on the true story of Aron Ralston as chronicled in his book, “Between a Rock and a Hard Place,” “127 Hours” captured the harrowing tale of Ralston, trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah. We’ve all heard what happened next – Ralston resorted to cutting off his right arm to free himself.

Ralston’s tale was harrowing, but the film provided a smart, enjoyable, and entertaining experience.

In this interview, Beaufoy and I talked about:

• What went through his mind when Boyle asked him to co-write “127 Hours?”
• Is the film more like a celebration of life rather than a tale of personal triumph?
• Working with Boyle for the second time.
• Has Boyle whispered “28 Days Later” threequel yet?
• How Boyle planned in shooting “127 Hours” using two different cinematographers – and incorporating the film stocks to be used on the script.
• How did he envision writing the “cutting off the arm” scene?
• Was the planned scene more gory than the final cut?
Transcendence!
