First Look: Jason Clarke in Everest

Did anyone see that movie with Ethan Hawke called ALIVE? Any time a film about hiking comes up, my mind immediately goes to this. Then I think of cannibalism, and then I’m creeped out.

Good thing is that I’m pretty sure I can watch EVEREST without worrying about any decisions surrounding devouring the flesh of others. However, it is the rather sad true story about an expedition on Mount Everest that left eight hikers dead. The film is based on author John Krakauer's INTO THIN AIR. Krakauer was one of the survivors.

Right now Baltasar Kormakur (THE DEEP) is directing a star studded cast in Napal: Jason Clarke is playing Rob Hall with Jake Gyllenhaal as Scott Fischer, Josh Brolin as Beck Weathers and John Hawkes as Doug Hansen. Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly and Thomas M. Wright also star

The first photo from the film (shown above) shows Clarke having a rather tough time.

EVEREST hits theaters on February 27, 2015.

Nice! I wasn't aware they were doing this. I'm very excited about two of my favorite books being translated to the big screen for 2015; 'Into Thin Air' and 'In the Heart of the Sea.' Both are phenomenal books about true survival.

This sounds great. Considering the subject matter, they definitely got an amazing cast.

Great Story...

I read Krakauer's book and can tell people not familiar with the story that it is truly tragic. A lot of people died because of the inaction and ignorance of others while at the same time a few lives were saved. There is another book told from one of the expert Russian climbers on the mountain during the expedition. His story is a little different from Krakauer's, basically he blames the guy for a lot of the trouble that lead to the tragedy on Everest.
