In reply to buffalo606: I hope they base the film on real events and not on the "Into Thin Air" fictional version

Looking at that link they mention Krakauer's book, so I guess its based on that. I admit its the book I read first and found it gripping... but was very glad to then follow it by reading Boukreev's book, its not as gripping, not so Hollywood but gives a different picture. It balances the story of events out.

I'd still go and see the film whichever book its based on.

Interesting as only his Batman co star Tom Hardy is cast as Malloy so far.

In reply to yogi2749: Two different films? Mallory is very different to the Everest story with Krakauer/Borkeev.

I think he needs to get his head down and concentrate on playing well for Spurs myself.

In reply to Mark Collins: Yes, Boukreev's version puts a "non Journalistic" view of the event. Especially as , Krakauer's by his won admission , was asleep (AND SAFE) in his own tent when the Boukreev was out saving lives.
