Sheldon Turner

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy is swiftly becoming a solid bet when it comes to physically demanding roles; the actor has already pumped himself up for parts in Bronson, Warrior, and The Dark Knight Rises, but he may be taking his dedication to a different level (or at least a different elevation). Deadline Hollywood reports that the actor is “in early talks” for the role of George Mallory in Doug Liman‘s fact-based Everest. While this is an early report, Hardy certainly seems like a very good fit for the part, so hopefully this scoop will pan out for all involved. Liman, who is apparently both “an avid climber and fan of the Mallory story” will helm the film from a Sheldon Turner script adapted from Jeffrey Archer‘s book, “Paths of Glory.” The story centers on the British Mallory who, so determined to be the first man to ever scale Everest, he tried it three times in the 1920′s. It’s still a topic of hot debate as to whether Mallory and his climbing partner, Sandy Irvine, ever did make it to the top of the mountain – they were last seen on Mallory’s third attempt in 1924 as they attempted the final leg of the climb. Their bodies were discovered in 1999, and that discovery and the subsequent investigation as to whether the pair made it was the subject of Anthony Geffen’s documentary, The Wildest Dream. It really is wild stuff.

The 1964 film version of Bonnie and Clyde is widely considered a modern classic and one of the jumping off points for the new Hollywood of the 60s and 70s. Do we really need another Bonnie and Clyde movie then, since we already had one that did things so well? Of course we do, we need a new version of everything. And this one might not actually be so bad, because instead of being a similarly romantic take on the story of the lovebird outlaws, this new proposed project is going to be based on a more real life take on the duo.
