It has been a few months since we got our first look at The Wildest Dream the biopic that focuses on George Mallory and Sandy Irvine’s attempts to climb Everest. The film is still set to open across the U.S. on August 6th, and will star Ralph Fiennes (as the voice of Mallory), Natasha Richardson (voice of Ruth Mallory), Hugh Dancy (voice of Irvine), and Alan Rickman (voice of Noel Odell). Liam Neeson will provide the voice of the narrator, while most of the tough stuff is done by Conrad Anker and Leo Houlding.
Below is another clip from the film that talks about the Himalayan superstitions surround Everest, and the warnings that Mallory received from monks living in the area that implored him not to go. They told him that they feared something bad would happen to him, and as we all know, he and Irvine never returned from that fateful expedition in 1924.
The film looks great. Can’t wait to see it for myself.
