Danny Boyle's '127 Hours' film set to open in November

Danny Boyle’s new film 127 Hours will be released on November 5, according to a surprise tweet from Fox Searchlight. The film stars James Franco as mountain climber Aron Ralston, who became famous in 2003 when he was forced to amputate his right arm with a knife after it became trapped under a boulder.

The film will be Boyle’s follow-up to his multi-award winning 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire, which earned Boyle Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

The November release comes as a surprise to many because there have been no photos or screenings of the film released in the run-up to awards season, and it is not set to premiere at the Venice or Toronto film festivals.

The film co-stars Lizzy Caplan, Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn.
