‘Dark Knight Rises’ star Tom Hardy exits ‘Everest’ fanboy favorites being sought

A change to the production schedule of Sony’s upcoming survival drama Everest has resulted in star Tom Hardy to drop out of the film, leaving neither George Mallory nor his rival George Finch yet cast in the movie.

Bane vs batman Dark Knight Rises photoDeadline reports that while the studio has lost Hardy, who played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, they could still end up with a comic book movie star in the role, or that of Finch, by the time all is said and done.

“The frontrunner to replace Hardy right now is Benedict Cumberbatch, but other actors in the mix to play Mallory and Australian rival George Finch include Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess,” reports Deadline.

Now, just for the science fiction and superhero movie fans:

  • Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness)
  • Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop)
  • James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past)
  • Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World)
  • Henry Cavill (Batman vs. Superman)
  • Luke Evans (The Hobbit, The Crow)
  • Dan Stevens (The Tomorrow People)
  • Matthew Goode (Watchmen)
  • Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas)

Fans may give Everest a go based on the casting candidates listed and that’s what the studio is banking on.
