James Franco joins Danny Boyles 127 Hours

James Franco has signed on to starr in Danny Boyle’s next picture 127 Hours.


Based on the true story of Aron Ralston, a mountaineer who lost an arm in a 2003 climbing accident, Franco is reportedly on board to play Ralston.


Ralston’s right arm was pinned to a rock wall in Utah for 127 hours until he hacked it off with a dull knife.


Boyle is writing the script with Slumdog Millionaire scribe Simon Beaufoy.
