The Mountain Between Us Synopsis

What if your life depended on a stranger?

After an incoming storm forces the cancellation of her flight to New York, talented photojournalist Alex Martin finds herself stuck in Idaho the night before her wedding. Scrambling to make it home in time, she hits upon a longshot idea and charters a plane to Denver in the hopes of catching the red-eye to New York that same night. Another stranded passenger, Ben Bass, a skilled British neurosurgeon due back on the East Coast to perform a critical, life-saving operation, tunes out his own misgivings about the plan and joins her.

As Alex and Ben fly ahead of inclement weather in a small Piper two-seater, their pilot suffers a massive stroke, and the small craft crashes in the deep snows of the Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah. Trapped in the remote region with little hope of rescue, the two weary travelers embark on a terrifying and transformative pilgrimage across the unforgiving reaches of the vast, rugged terrain, fighting against the elements, animals and time. Under the most extreme circumstances imaginable, they gradually learn to trust one another, and a powerful connection grows between them---one that will reshape the course of their lives.

At this point it's foolish to call anything a stretch for Fassbender, since he's obviously capable of just about anything, but I am looking forward to him taking a turn as a rugged outdoorsman. He managed to survive some pretty harsh conditions playing a Roman soldier in Centurion, though the romance that time around was less than believable

Miss Bala Director May Tackle The Mountain Between Us Miss Bala Director May Tackle The Mountain Between Us

As Naranjo's reputation in the U.S. has been forged solely by the brutal Miss Bala, I'd be curious to see what direction he would take this romantic journey. Screenwriter J. Mills Goodloe (Adaline, Pride) has already been brought on board to translate Martin's novel into a passion-fueled drama about survival and second chances. Together, the pair could craft something gritty and salacious. Should he sign on, the film would be Naranjo's first studio feature.
