Aron Ralston's Story to Become Film

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).
