Snippets: Saving Lives, Ice Castles, and More
A movie about making a difference in a teen's life, a remake of an ice flick, and more.
Remakes On Ice!: Not sure why it had to be remade, but 1978's Ice Castles is getting a makeover. Sony Pictures Worldwide will star newcomer Taylor Firth, a U.S. figure skating whiz who also just happens to be a Christian. Former skating champ Michelle Kwan will have a cameo in the film, which is scheduled to release sometime around the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Remembering the Martyrs: A new documentary, Malatya, tells the story of two Turkish Christians and a German missionary who were tortured and killed inside a Bible publishing hours in Malatya, Turkey, in 2007. Two of the surviving wives, who have forgiven the killers, both contributed to the film, which releases to DVD on Saturday.
