Paul Heller Climbs to "High Places"



Producer Paul Heller will make a big screen feature about the life and adventures of British mountaineer George Mallory titled "In High Places."

Bringing back the memory of British mountaineer George Mallory, producer Paul Heller is set to develop a film feature depicting the life and adventures of the strong-willed man, whose frozen body was found in 1999 at Mt. Everest after his last expedition in 1924 with close friend Andrew Irvine

"It is a very good story and the more we looked at it the more exciting it seemed to us," so Heller said as reported by Reuters. "The life of George Mallory is inherently very dramatic and the whole history of the climb, and why he and Irvine were doing it, is so gripping that we decided to go with the project."

Titled "In High Places", the picture will take its focus on Mallory's expeditions to Everest in 1921 and 1922 as well as his final 1924 attempt. It will be made with modest budget of $7 million with first-time director James McEachen at helm and Jamling Tenzing Sherpa serving as the production manager of the film's unit in India.

Taking main locations in Tibet and Indian Himalayan resort of Darjeeling, "Places" will be shot at high altitudes and use the same base camp where Mallory started his last journey. No words on cast yet, but Heller has indicated that a British actor will be chosen to portray Mallory.
