Aron Ralston's Story to Become Film

Nov 11, 2009
Outside Magazine

Variety announced last week that director Danny Boyle's next movie will be '127 Hours,' the story of mountaineer Aron Ralston. During a climb in Utah in 2003, Ralston was pinned by a boulder for nearly five days and eventually amputated his own arm to get free. We've mentioned Ralston quite a few times in our pages, but for more about this ultimate survival story, check out "Between a Rock and the Hardest Place" by Mark Jenkins (Outside, August 2003).
