If they agree to do it, the actors will play strangers who are stranded on icy mountain after their small plane crashes.
Charlie Hunnam and Margot Robbie may be seen on the same screen. The "Sons of Anarchy" actor and the "The Wolf of Wall Street" actress are top choices to star in Fox 2000 and Chernin Entertainment's "The Mountain Between Us".
The film is a harrowing tale of survival and a love story between two strangers. Per Deadline, Ashley is a writer catching a flight from Salt Lake City and heading East for her wedding. Ben is a doctor returning from a medical conference. When their flight is canceled due to a broken de-icer, the strangers agree to charter a ride, only to see the pilot suffer a heart attack and crash into a desolate snowy mountain region. He breaks ribs and she suffers a leg fracture.
Fortunately, aside from a doctor he's an avid climber, and as he struggles to get her down from the mountain in harsh weather, she begins to realize that maybe she was headed to marry the wrong guy.
The adaptation of the Charles Martin book will be directed by "Paradise Now" helmer Hany Abu-Assad. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing for Chernin Entertainment. According to THR, Hunnam and Robbie are not yet in talk stages.
Robbie is also negotiating for Rupert Sanders-directed adaptation of the Japanese comic book "Ghost in the Shell".
