I love it when two completely different films start up production around the same time with similar plot lines tied in. This latest case pits The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale and Tom Hardy against each other in two separate projects that involve Mount Everest.
The Bale-led project teams him with Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur for a film simply called Everest that follows the book Into Thin Air.
The Tom Hardy-led project is being directed for Sony by Doug Liman and follows the first man to attempt to climb to the peak in the 1920’s.
Both films will probably yield very different results, but one will most likely get overshadowed by the other due to the similar inspirations.
Which one would you like to see more?
