Kate Winslet in Talks to Star Opposite Idris Elba in ‘Mountain Between Us’

Kate Winslet is in negotiations to star opposite Idris Elba in the romantic drama “The Mountain Between Us.”

Hany Abu-Assad is directing the film for Fox 2000, while Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are producing through Fox-based Chernin Entertainment.

The movie is based on Charles Martin’s 2010 bestselling novel about a surgeon and woman who fall in love after being stranded following a plane crash. They must figure out how to escape the mountain wilderness, where the temperature drops to the teens at night, while suffering broken ribs and a leg fracture.

Elba has been attached to “The Mountain Between Us” since February.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” writer Chris Weitz penned the most recent draft of the screenplay, and J. Mills Goodloe and Scott Frank wrote earlier versions of the script.

Winslet has received seven Academy Award nominations, most recently for “Steve Jobs,” and won the Oscar in 2009 for “The Reader.” She starred in “Triple 9” and will appear with Will Smith in New Line’s drama “Collateral Beauty.”

Winslet is repped by CAA and United Agents.
