HALIFAX, Canada – April 6, 2016 – The game of hockey is a favorite pastime sport for people around the world. For centuries, people were taught that the white Canadians invented the sport. But, the truth is finally revealed in George and Darril Fosty’s book, Black Ice. ESPN did a segment on the book to revealed the true history of Hockey and the first hockey team to ever exist, the Nova Scotia’s (CHL) Colored Hockey League circa 1895-1925. To view the short documentary, click here.
Now, the Fosty Brothers and Producer PJ from Revelation Studios wants to transform the book into a feature film. The script has been reviewed by the movie guide board of Hollywood and was given an A-, which is unheard of in the industry. The cast and crew for this project are on standby. The contract agreement for production will receive $10 million through Revelation Studios. The distribution of the film is through the studios relationship with REGAL/UNITED ARTISTS chain of theaters for 300 – 1,000 screens. However, to move the project forward, the film requires a minimum deposit. This is why they turned to the Kickstarter community to raise $375,000 by April 30, 2016.
“A lot of this history was either conveniently ignored, lost, or simply forgotten.” ~ George Fosty, Co-Author of Black Ice
