Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Everest' Pushed Back to September 2015


Jason Clarke


The movie about two disastrous expeditions to climb the world's highest mountain gets pushed back seven months from the original date.

Universal has shifted a release date for "Everest (2015)", an adventure thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The studio originally planned to release the film in 3D on February 27, 2015, but now has a change of heart and decides to delay it until September 18, 2015.

The film tells a tale based on the 1996 disastrous expedition to scale Mount Everest. Two different expeditions were hit by a sudden blinding storm, resulting in the death of some of the climbers. The movie will be sourced from various books and interviews with survivors.

Gyllenhaal is joined in the cast ensemble by Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, and Thomas M. Wright. They are filming the movie on locations in Nepal and Italy.

Another "Everest" pic is in the works at Sony Pictures. It's about English mountaineer, George Mallory, and his three attempts in the early 1920s to become the first man to climb the world's highest mountain. Benedict Cumberbatch is rumored being in talks to replace Tom Hardy who was originally attached to play the lead role.
