“X-Men: First Class” and “Prometheus” star Michael Fassbender may be staying in business with 20th Century Fox, as he’s in early talks to topline Gerardo Naranjo‘s romantic drama “The Mountain Between Us.”
J. Mills Goodloe‘s script, based on the novel by Charles Martin, follows two strangers who survive a plane crash in the Colorado woods and are forced to rely on one another for survival, eventually falling in love.
If a deal comes together, Fassbender would play Ben Trace, a doctor and avid climber who uses his skills to transport an injured writer named Ashley down a mountain in harsh weather.
Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and Jenno Topping will produce for Chernin Entertainment.
Naranjo, who previously directed the Mexican thriller “Miss Bala,” will make his studio debut with “The Mountain Between Us.”
Fassbender is currently preparing to star in Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor,” and he’s also scheduled to reunite with his “Shame” helmer Steve McQueen on the drama “Twelve Years a Slave,” which Brad Pitt is producing through his Plan B banner. Fassbender, who’s repped by CAA, will next appear in Scott’s sci-fi epic “Prometheus,” which 20th Century Fox opens June 8.
