    DANNY BOYLE GOES 127 HOURS


    Slumdog Millionaire's Oscar-winning director, Danny Boyle may be developing 127 Hours, a movie based on the story of mountain climber Aron Ralston that has gone wrong, up to the point that he has to perform self amputation.

    "Ralston was climbing in Utah in 2003 when a boulder dislodged itself and pinned his lower right arm. He was stuck there for five days, during which time he finished all his water, started drinking his own urine and prepared to meet his maker.

    Half-delirious and with the arm already dead, he realised he could get free if he lost it. So he broke his own bones and sawed it off with a tool he describes as "what you'd get if you bought a $15 flashlight and got a free multi-use tool" (go ahead and wince). Then he still had to rappel down the cliff and get out of the canyon in the hot midday sun." - EO

    Danny's take on the inspiring story will be another one to be watched out, aiming for another Oscar perhaps. Boyle has written the story with his Slumdog writer Simon Beaufoy while Slumdog producer Christian Colson will produce this. A Slumdog 2?

    There's no word yet on who'll play Ralston yet.
