Actress Kate Winslet is apparently in talks to join Idris Elba in new romance-survival drama, The Mountain Between Us. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 40-year-old Titanic star is in negotiations over a role in 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of Charles Martin’s 2010 bestselling novel.
The original book follows an engaged woman who charters a flight home to avoid weather delays. She then meets a surgeon on the flight and falls in love, but when the plane crashes, the two must work together to survive the mountain wilderness.
Paradise Now helmer Hany Abu-Assad is directing the romantic drama, with Chris Weitz writing the most recent draft of the film.
