Cillian Murphy to Star in Danny Boyle's "127 Hours"?

Posted: November 18th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Cillian Murphy to Star in Danny BoyleSubmit Comment
Director Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire) has already confirmed that he will re-team with "Slumdog" writer Simon Beaufoy "127 Hours," a story of mountaineer Aron Ralson.

Since the plan is to have the film completed by the end of next year, Boyle is likely already thinking about casting. One actor who keeps coming up is Cillian Murphy, who NewsOfTheWorld says is the top choice to play Ralson.

This is either a lazy rumor or a completely expected decision by Boyle, since the two men have already worked together on "28 Days Later" and "Sunshine."

Plot: After his right forearm got pinned for nearly five days under a boulder during a climb in Utah in May, 2003, Ralston used a dull knife to amputate the limb. He then scaled a 65-foot sheer wall and hiked out before running into a family that gave him water and food. He was finally rescued by helicopter.

He's got that crazy eye look to him. He was a decent bad guy in Red Eye.

I heard after he gets free, ho goes on to become the bad guy in Inspector Gadget! (I offer this joke because no one even noticed the one I wrote about Bruce Lee killing him in Enter the Dragon) :-(

Isn't this the one where no one talks for the first f*cking hour. Its just a guy trapped under a rock.

@ jeffw1978: Yup, that's the one. Although I heard the dude becomes friends with a volleyball...

... before he cuts off his arm.

That said, I can see this Cillian dude becoming friends with balls.
Cutting arms off? Not so much.

"Saw" mixed with "Castaway". YAY! They should mix some "Ravenous" in there and get some cannibalism going. I'd watch it then...I'll probably watch it anyways.
