Anyone Climbing "The Mountain of Death" Sort of Had It Coming: Dyatlov Pass Incident Being Adapted to Film

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | February 15, 2012 | Comments ()


Now there are numerous problems with that summary, little inconvenient facts like the whole radiation thing not showing up in the original reports but seemingly tacked on later. If you're so inclined you can find perfectly compelling analysis online that concludes this was a routine case of campers ravaged by hypothermia. But the story makes for a compelling kernel for a film, one that is going to begin on site filming in Russia in March. Here's the first poster:

The bad news is that Renny Harlin is the one in charge of it. You may have guessed that from the fact that the film is currently called "Untitled Renny Harlin Project" on the poster like an intern screwed up mail merge. Bragging about Cliffhanger really isn't a winning strategy. If you go there when asked what your two biggest films are, you probably should just mutter under your breath after the first one. Sure, Die Hard 2 was decent ... and then I can't think of a second good film by the guy so I head to IMDB, and find this fantastic picture:

I have less than no words.
