(“I know what you’re thinking, ladies, and the answer is yes.”)

Director Danny Boyle is reuniting with Slumdog Millionaire writer (say it looked pretty if you want, but that movie was horribly written) Simon Beaufoy and producer Christian Colson for 127 Hours, a movie about mountain climber Aron Ralston.

Ralston’s right forearm got pinned for nearly five days under a boulder during a climb in Utah in May 2003. He used a dull knife to amputate the limb, then scaled a 65-foot sheer wall and hiked out before running into a family that gave him water and food. He was finally rescued by helicopter. [Variety]

That reminds me of the time I had a big pimple on my back that I was scared to pop, so I made my girlfriend do it and then cried until she made me a martini with a vicodin crushed into it.   I guess what I’m trying to say is that unless this guy turns blue and fights the helicopter with a pterodactyl, who really cares.
