Danny Boyle's Next Is '127 Hours'

After much speculating on Danny Boyle's follow up to Slumdog Millionaire, Variety can confirm that his next project will be '127 Hours' a film that tells the story of mountaineer 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.
