My fellow Columbia MFA student James Franco (oh yeah, it’s true, we’ve practically even met) is set to star in 127 Hours for Danny Boyle, the story of climber Aron Ralston, who hacked off his right arm to free it from a boulder.

The film tells the story of mountaineer Aron Ralston, whose 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. [ComingSoon]

Settle down, ladies.  Now, I know Aron Ralston seems like the manliest man ever, and he makes a ton of money traveling the country for speaking appearances and he practically has a dildo for an arm, but keep in mind… he was right handed.  So he probably throws like a girl now.  Hopefully doctors can whip him up some sort of prosthetic attachment for throwing a frisbee.  What?  You know that motherf*cker plays frisbee.
