Team of titans

Superstar: Julia Roberts

Kapur, known for his internationally acclaimed biopics like Bandit Queen, Elizabeth and Elizabeth: the Golden Age, will helm the project while Roberts' Red Om Films and Kevin Townsend’s Science + Fiction will produce it.

Mallory is remembered for having said, “Because it’s there” in reply to the question, “Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?” He and his climbing partner disappeared in 1924 when they were 800 feet from the summit before the clouds closed in. Titled Mallory, the picture is being produced by Townsend, Roberts, Philip Rose and Lisa Gillan of Red Om Films.
Set in post World War I England, the story chronicles Mallory’s attempts to scale Everest and the toll it takes on his marriage, as the mountain climbing becomes his obsession.
 The script has been penned by Townsend and the team of Matthew Faulk and Mark Skeet of Vanity Fair fame. Kapur is also planning to rope in this year’s Best Supporting Actor Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz for his ambitious project Paani.
