Emily Watson and John Hawkes are also on board for the story of a 1996 expedition.

Crisis hit when a savage snowstorm battered the Himalayan peak on a day which would account for more lives lost upon the mountain than any other in history.

Filming on location in Nepal and based on the John Krakauer book “Into Thin Air,” Universal Pictures’ “Everest” is tracking for a September 2015 release.
