Winslet, Elba Team On “Mountain Between”

Kate Winslet is in negotiations to star alongside Idris Elba in Hany Abu-Assad’s romantic drama “The Mountain Between Us” for Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment.

Based on Charles Martin’s 2010 bestselling novel, the story follows a surgeon and woman who fall in love after being stranded following a plane crash.

They must figure out how to escape the mountain wilderness, where the temperature drops at night, while suffering broken ribs and a leg fracture.

Chris Weitz (“Star Wars: Rogue One”) penned the most recent draft of the screenplay while Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing. Elba has been attached to “The Mountain Between Us” since February.
