Keira Knightley cast as mountaineer's widow in upcoming flick 'Everest'

4 May 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Wellington, May 4: Keira Knightley is all set to join the star-studded cast of 'Everest' where she'll play the wife of late mountaineer Rob Hall, it has been revealed.

According to Stuff.co.nz, the film will retell the tragic expedition to Mt Everest that killed five people, including climbers from New Zealand - Rob Hall and Andy Harris - in 1996.

The 28-year-old actress will reconstruct the touching phone calls that Hall and his then-pregnant wife Jan Arnold exchanged while he was trapped on the mountain.

Arnold, who assisted in the making of the film, had previously said that she believes the story, which shows bravery, ambition and humanity, is worth telling, and though there have been several films on the incident,. »

Keira Knightley Joins The Cast Of Everest

2 May 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Keira Knightley has escaped the perils of the corset to join the sprawling cast of Universal’s 3D adventure epic, Everest. Produced by Working Title, the film will explore three real-life rival expeditions that took place in 1996, all of which fell prey to a giant storm. Knightley is set to play Jan Arnold, the wife of mountain climber Rob Hall.

The roster so far suggests the studio are aiming for an awards contender, with a glut of Hollywood’s heavyweights starring alongside the English rose. Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Lawless) stars as Knightley’s husband, with Jake Gyllenhaal (Prisoners), John Hawkes (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Josh Brolin (Oldboy) all also starring. Last month, Robin Wright (Netflix’s House Of Cards) and Sam Worthington (Clash Of The Titans) also snagged roles in what’s shaping up to be one of the year’s showiest ensembles.

With the Cannes Film Festival set to get underway later this month, there's plenty of wheeling and dealing going on, which means there's plenty of casting news.  First up, Keira Knightley has signed on as a late addition to the Everest.  Directed by Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns), the movie focuses on two different expeditions that struggle to survive while climbing the world’s tallest mountain.  Filming has been underway for well over a month, and the Daily Mail reports that Knightley has signed on to play "Jan Arnold, widow of climber Rob Hall, who conquered the mountain five times."  Knightley "shot most of her scenes at Pinewood and around the Home Counties," so don't expect to see her character scaling the mountain.  The outstanding cast also includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, Thomas M. Wright, Sam Worthington, and Robin WrightEverest opens »

‘Everest’ Movie Crew Safe After Deadly Avalanche, Continuing to the Top

18 April 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The crew working on location for the Cross Creek Pictures and Walden Media film “Everest” is safe from its position at base camp after a  deadly avalanche swept down a climbing route on the Nepalese mountain.

The nine members of the second-unit crew, which consists of professional hikers and cameramen, will remain on schedule to continue acclimating, with plans to summit the mountain early next month. May is peak climbing season, when weather conditions are at their most favorable.

“We just got word that everyone is fine,” Tyler Thompson, a co-founder of Cross Creek, told Variety, “and we are looking to set up some kind of donation to help out some of the affected (Nepalese) families.”

The avalanche killed 12 Nepalese guides around 6:30 a.m. local time and has left four missing in the deadliest disaster on the world’s highest peak. Several more people sustained injuries.
