James Franco is strapping on his hiking boots to play a mountaineer in his next movie.

The 31-year-old Pineapple Express actor is taking the lead in Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle's next project, 127 Hours, reports Variety.

The movie is based on the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston, who cut off his own arm to free himself after lying trapped under a rock for five days.

127 Hours will be Boyle's first film since his huge success Slumdog Millionaire, which cleaned up at awards ceremonies across the globe last year.
