  • Damian Lewis to play George Mallory? Yes, if author Jeffrey Archer gets his way! ➡

    Columbia has purchased the film rights to Paths of Glory, Archer’s bestselling book about famous British mountaineer George Mallory who disappeared on Mt. Everest in 1924.

    Thanks to Funn Lim for this news posted on the London Evening Standard.co.uk that Lord Archer thinks Damian Lewis is the best choice to play Mallory in the movie:

    GOOD news for Lord Archer. He has sold the rights to the film adaptation of his book on George Mallory, Paths of Glory, to Columbia. Interestingly, the millionaire novelist is keener to see Damian Lewis cast in the role, rather than the favourite, Christian Bale, which might be because Lewis has played Archer himself in the satire Jeffrey Archer: The Truth. “We’re about to sign the contract this week,” Archer said. “Columbia have bought it which is good because a lot of people say they’re going to make a film and you know it’s all talk, Columbia are a serious outfit. Everybody says Christian Bale should play it. I think Damian Lewis is a very fine actor and obviously I’d be delighted if Christian Bale played it but I’m a huge fan of Damian Lewis, I think he’s a very fine actor.” Did Archer enjoy Lewis’s take on him? “Unfortunately, I never saw it,” he replies.
