Amber Tamblyn In Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours”

Amber Tamblyn is set to play the love interest of James Franco’s Aron Ralston character in “127 Hours” for Fox Searchlight reports Deadline Hollywood.

Based on a true story, Ralston is a mountaineer who spent five days with his right forearm pinned under a boulder during a climb in May 2003 and had to use a dull knife to amputate the limb before scaling a wall and seeking rescue.

Tamblyn will appear as his girlfriend in flashbacks that inspire him to keep going. Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire”) directs from a script by Simon Beaufoy. Filming kicking off next month in Utah.
