It looks like “Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle may not be headed back to Mumbai right away, after all. Variety is reporting that Boyle’s next project is an adaptation of “127 Hours,” the true story of a mountaineer who was pinned under a boulder in Utah for five days and eventually amputated his own arm to make his escape. The rumor mill has Ryan Gosling playing the lead, but nothing’s been confirmed yet. Stay tuned. (Via Gawker)

There is no book entitled “127 Hours” to adapt. If anything, it is an adaptation of “Between a Rock and a Hard Place” by Aron Ralston (2004). The Variety article does not even mention a book or claim that the film is an adaptation.
