‘Dark Knight Rises’ star Christian Bale set to star in ‘Everest’ directed by Baltasar Kormakur

Christian Bale continues to lineup films in his post-Batman portion of his career.

Christian Bale Bruce Wayne Dark Knight photoDeadline reports that Universal Pictures and Working Title are teaming with Emmett/Furla Films on Everest, a mountain climbing disaster film which will be directed by  Baltasar Kormakur (The Deep)

Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce with WT’s Liza Chasin, along with Evan Hayes. Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and George Furla are in discussions to co-finance the film and join in a producing capacity as well. Justin Isbell wrote the most recent script draft.

Bale is in early talks to star in a tale based on the 1996 disastrous expedition to scale Mount Everest.

Three different expeditions were hit by a sudden blinding storm and by the time it was all over, eight climbers died.

The tale was first made famous by Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air, his first-person account of being among the lucky ones to make it back down the mountain.

This film will be sourced from various books and interviews with survivors.
