LOS ANGELES/BERLIN (Hollywood Reporter) - Kate Mara is in negotiations for a role in Danny Boyle’s survival drama “127 Hours” opposite James Franco and Amber Tamblyn.
The actress also has booked more time as Eric’s assistant Brittany in upcoming episodes of HBO’s “Entourage.”
Fox Searchlight’s “127 Hours” tells the true story of a mountain climber trapped under a boulder in Utah and his desperate efforts to escape. Mara and Tamblyn play hikers he meets before his ordeal.
Mara appears in the comedy-drama “HappyThankYouMorePlease,” which won the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance last month.
She next appears in the May release “Iron Man 2,” playing a federal investigator, and recently finished shooting the feature “Ironclad,” with Paul Giamatti and James Purefoy. Mara also has played recurring characters on “24,” “Jack & Bobby” and “Nip/Tuck.”
