Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”, “Jane Got a Gun”) will direct “Massacre in the Himalayas”, based on the Men’s Journal story about a group of climbers who were set on by Pakistani terrorists.
According to Variety, who had the scoop, O’Connor will direct a fictionalized version of the incident.
“I love the idea of using the colossal backdrop of K2, the second highest peak on earth, to explore a man’s battle for survival against the Taliban, nature, and himself,” says O’Connor. “Our hero becomes a one-man army on a quest to avenge the deaths of his mountaineering team. His experience becomes a living nightmare, a lifetime journey, and a redefinition of the man.”
Gianni Nunnari’s Hollywood Gang Productions are producing.
