Production

Everest is a metaphor for ambition: anyone with ambition needs to balance it with their family life. There are mountains on one side and there is the home of the other, and the distance between the two is immense, for each of the two poles draws you in two diametrically opposite directions 1 . ”
Baltasar Kormákur

Genesis and development

The scenario is based on the autobiographical book Left for dead on Everest ( Left for Dead: My Journey Home from Everest ) written by Beck Weathers and published in 2000 . He goes back to a disaster that occurred in May 1996 on Everest .

Distribution of roles

The role of Rob Hall was originally to be held by Christian Bale , but he left the project to turn in Exodus: Gods and Kings of Ridley Scott . He will be replaced by the Australian Jason Clarke 1 .

Most of the actors have undergone specific training. Jake Gyllenhaal reports that he did a simulated altitude test at 9,000 meters with Josh Brolin : “We did an altitude test at 9,000 metersfor ten minutes in a box and Josh and I decided to stay longer. long time. We thought we could bear it because we felt good. We were joking about the fact that it was not so bad when all of a sudden we got out and we immediately felt nauseated. During the next ten minutes, we went from a fairly happy state to a deep sadness: it made us understand the powerful effects of altitude on the mind ” 1 .

Shooting

“To turn at the foot of Everest, at high altitude, we had to climb it ourselves. And shooting in the Dolomites took place by – 30 °, 12 to 14 hours a day for 6 weeks. We also created a kind of giant freezer on the board so as to blow real snow on the actors 1 . ”
Baltasar Kormákur

The filming began on6 in Val Senales, Italy , Nepal and the Buckinghamshire studio, England , UK 7 .

Mountaineer Guy Cotter, played by Sam Worthington in the film, was a consultant during the shoot. At the time of the events of 1996, he was coordinator of the relief. He explains: “For us, in the mountain guide community, these events taught us a lot. We had a lot of questions afterwards so that this tragedy could never happen again. In a way, it has allowed us to evolve as a profession. Rob was at the peak of his career. But we were at the beginning of the profession of high mountain guide in the Himalayas and sometimes the pioneers do not survive the discovery of the parameters of their environment ” 1 .

The Misadventures of Jon Krakauer had already been told in the TV movie Death on top of the world of Robert Markowitz broadcast in 1997 1 .
