Scott Frank, who is best known for writing movies like Get Shorty, Out of Sight, and Minority Report, has apparently been working on a new draft of The Mountain Between Usfor Chernin Entertainment. The film, which has Michael Fassbender in talks to star, is about a doctor and a woman who survive a plane crash in Colorado, work to survive the harsh weather, and eventually fall in love. The story is based on the novel by Charles Martin and the first draft was scripted by J. Mills Goodloe, who wrote the 2007 Sunu Gonera movie Pride.

Variety says that Gerardo Naranjo will direct the film, making it the filmmaker's English-language debut. Narrajo made his first feature film in 2004, a Mexican-set drama called Malachance, and just last year he directed the thriller Miss Bala. While I wasn't a big fan of the movie, it was premiered at both the Cannes Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival and earned a good amount of praise from critics.

Frank, who was given an Academy Award nomination for his script work on Out of Sight , hasn't had a screenplay produced since 2008's Marley & Me, but he is getting set to write and direct the thriller A Walk Among The Tombstones, which is based on the novel by Lawrence Block. Liam Neeson is currently attached to star in that film. He made his directorial debut in 2007 with the crime drama The Lookout, a film that many point to when discussing the emerging talents of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
