Worthington, Wright To Scale “Everest”

Sam Worthington and Robin Wright have joined ensemble cast of Baltasar Kormakur’s increasingly star-studded “Everest” at Universal Pictures.

The pair join Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson and Thomas Wright in the true story tale of a disastrous attempt to scale the summit of the world’s highest mountain when they were hit by a fierce snowstorm near the top.

Worthington will play Guy Cotter and Wright will play Beck Weather’s wife, Peach. The casting comes just days after Universal pushed back the film several months to a September 18th 2015 release.

The film is currently shooting in Nepal ahead of location shooting in the Italian Dolomites and at both Cinecitta Studios in Rome and Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
