Pegg will play a ‘fraidy cat, while Dawson will play a woman who loves art thieves. Plural.

Director Danny Boyle is thinking of returning to unconventional monster movie territory nine years after his terrifying zombie film ’28 Days Later’.
Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours earned a lot of critical acclaim for its realistic depiction of hiker Aron Ralston hacking off his own arm with a dull penknife, but it turns out it could have been even more painful to watch.
Danny Boyle’s new film, 127 Hours, premieres tomorrow. James Franco stars as Aron Ralston, a climber who is forced to amputate his own arm after it is crushed under a rock. In honor of Ralston’s remarkable tale of survival, we here at Screen Junkies came up with a list of other memorable films that feature scenes of amputation. Some of them are disturbing, others are lighthearted, but all of them contain badly mutilated limbs, and that’s the important part. Enjoy!
The press junket for 127 Hours was informative beyond our private interview with Danny Boyle. The real Aron Ralston and the filmmakers discussed the film, already generating controversy for its graphic depiction of a self-amputation. Ralston had to sever his own arm when he was trapped in a canyon for five days.
Even Ralston wants everybody to know it’s all good. He was happy to make the sacrifice. “They’re going to walk into this movie thinking it’s the story of the guy who cut his arm off,” Ralston said. “I hope they realize it’s about the guy who was smiling when he cut his arm off. It was a euphoric experience for me because it was going to get me back to what was important in my life. I had a chance to learn about that while I was trapped.”

Danny Boyle’s latest film is getting a lot of buzz, but not for the heartwarming triumph over adversity. It’s got that, but what people are focusing on is a dude cutting his arm off. 127 Hours is the Aron Ralston story. James Franco plays Ralston, an outdoorsman who gets trapped with his arm pinned under a rock. His escape by self-amputation was documented before, but Boyle’s film makes it visceral.
Here it is, folks: the arm cutting movie. You’ve heard about it. It’s true. There’s a lot to this story, but you know it as the arm cutting movie. Personally, I think they should do a double feature of 27 Dresses and 127 Hours. In either order.

Terrible time to pass a kidney stone.
Danny Boyle has confirmed to a friend of DreadCentral that he will in fact direct the next film in the 28 Days Later franchise. There a no details as to what the film will be about, or what the title will be. All anyone knows is that Boyle will return to direct.
After directing the first film in the series, Boyle was credited with reinventing zombies by people who know nothing about zombie movies. What the story is actually about is a rage virus that causes people to run around attacking everyone they see. Just like that Jason guy from "The Hills." Or that episode of "The Smurfs" that I still sometimes have nightmares about. **burns self with cigarette to stop from nodding off**
“This suuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks!” Fox Searchlight has dropped the new trailer for Danny Boyle‘s 127 hours. The film stars James Franco as Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who didn’t tell anyone he…
Warning: This clip from Danny Boyle's 127 Hours doesn't contain any of James Franco's arms getting cut off. Warning: It does contain Kate Mara getting wet. If you believe the latter might make you faint or nauseous I suggest you go no further.
Audience members at the Telluride and the Toronto Film Festivals have been passing out and seizing do to the graphic nature of 127 Hours. The movie is about a dude who has to cut off his own arm after it gets really REALLY stuck in crevice **resists urge to make crevice joke**. If you know you can't handle that, why would you go see it?! Stay for the first half with the swimming and laughing, and leave once the screaming starts.

Fox Searchlight has dropped the trailer for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours. James Franco stars as Aron Ralston, the climber who amputated his own arm after bring trapped between rocks for almost five days. It's one of those feel good movies. At least the parts with Kata Mara.
Simon Beaufoy, who also worked with Boyle on Slumdog Millionaire, wrote the screenplay, and has said that there is no dialogue for an entire hour of the story. Psssshhhh, nice job "writing," Simon. Can we get serious for a second though? I'm excited to see this film. I love the energy and unique storytelling of Slumdog, and I hope 127 Hours brings the same entertainment value without inducing too many cringes. Crushed appendages are just plain yucky. But fortitude in dire straits is yummy.
127 Hours hits theaters November 5, 2010.

Uber spicy redhead Kata Mara, and that girl who dies in the beginning of The Ring (Amber Tamblyn), are in talks to co-star alongside James Franco in 127 Hours, Danny Boyle's follow-up to Slumdog Millionaire. The film tells the story of Aron Ralston, a cautionary tale for anyone who plans to go out in the unforgiving wilderness alone and refuses to entertain the possibility they might have to cut their arm off after a boulder claims it for five hours straight. Mara and Tamblyn would play two hikers Aron meets before the antagonist (a large rock) has his way with the adventurer. If only Aron's quest involved finding his way home to Mara. Hell, I'd give my right arm to run the fingers of my left hand through her flowing locks. I think she'd find my insensitivity extremely attractive. (/Film)
