Charlie Hunnam, Margot Robbie Eyed for ‘The Mountain Between Us’

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.

Charlie Hunnam Says It’s ‘Heartbreaking’ Not To Be Starring In ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

“I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” Hunnam told Life & Style this past weekend. “When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him. … It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.”

Hunnam says he’ll be among the first to see Dornan’s fearless take on Christian Grey when “Fifty Shades” opens next February.

“If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” Hunnam said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”
