“Gone Girl” actress Rosamund Pike is in negotiations to star opposite Charlie Hunnam in Hany Abu-Assad’s “The Mountains Between Us” at Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment.
Based on the novel by Charles Martin, the pair play an engaged doctor and writer who both survive a plane crash in the mountains. He suffers broken ribs while she sustains a leg fracture, and he must use his climbing skills to get her down the mountain to safety.
Mills Goodloe and Scott Frank penned the adaptation and Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing. Filming aims to begin late in 2015 once Hunnam wraps Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur and Pike has had sufficient time to recover from her current pregnancy.
