Danny Boyle has no problem taking on challenging projects, and making an
“action movie where the hero can’t move” and will make you
“want him to cut his arm off by the end” certainly ranks among them. The
first images from 127 Hours (which apparently has minimal dialogue),
have arrived online from Entertainment Weekly and show star James
Franco as the rock-climbing and self-amputating Aron Ralston, who made
headlines when he escaped from being trapped under a boulder by fucking
off his right arm with a Swiss Army knife.
The film will likely debut at Toronto, but we’ll keep you up to date on it’s wider distribution plans.
