It opens May 17. Hornby also wrote the novel High Fidelity, which became a hit film of the same name starring John Cusack. Sherpa Norgay was climbing leader for the 1996 Everest IMAX Filming Expedition and summitted the mountain that year. He's also the son of Tenzing Norgay, one of the first men in history to summit Mt.
