Kate Mara Joins Boyle’s “127 Hours”

Kate Mara is in negotiations to join Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” at Fox Searchlight Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows Aron Ralston (James Franco), a mountaineer who spent five days with his right forearm pinned under a boulder during a climb in Utah in May 2003 and had to use a dull knife to amputate the limb before scaling a wall and seeking rescue.

Mara will play a hiker he meets before the accident. Amber Tamblyn also stars.
