HollywoodReporter.com — Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam and Wolf of Wall Street breakout Margot Robbie are the top choices for Fox 2000’s The Mountain Between Us, THR has confirmed.
Talks have yet to begin, according to sources, but if the deals get made, the pair will star as two strangers who, after their flight is canceled, charter a small plane together. But when the plane crashes, the duo are stranded in the mountainous wilderness. The film is based on a book by Charles Martin.
Hany Abu-Assad is directing the project, which Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing for Chernin Entertainment.
Hunnam will wrap up his leading role on FX’s Sons of Anarchy with its seventh season, which premieres in September. He’s in talks to star in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur film. His recent film projects have included Guillermo del Toro’s robot-versus-monster film Pacific Rim and the upcoming Crimson Peak. The actor was at one time attached to star in Fifty Shades of Grey, but ended up leaving the project, and was replaced by Jamie Dornan. He’s repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane Offer.
Please note we are NOT sure if Charlie will be a part of this as nothing has officially been confirmed! But here’s the blurb from The Hollywood Reporter with the news on the official release date for the sequel.
