Into Thin Air – the movie

If you read the book by John Krakauer and if you have seen the movie Everest in IMAX, you know the story of the devastating snow storm who took the lives of some of the most prolific guides on Mount Everest in 1996. There’s also a 1997 version of the story titled Into Thin Air, which streams on Netflix, but I don’t think anyone ever watched it.

Now Krakauer’s movie is being adapted and updated into a adventure drama and will hit the theaters some time the Fall of 2015.

What’s double awesome is that the film was shot in parts in Schnalstal, South Tyrol.
