Hartnett Plays LeMarque In “6 Below”

Josh Hartnett is set to star as former Olympic hockey player Eric LeMarque in the fact-based survival thriller “6 Below” for Tooley Productions.

LeMarque, who played for the Northern Michigan University hockey team and on the French team in the 1994 Olympics, got lost snowboarding in a massive storm. He survived eight days with nothing but his wits to sustain him – at the same time coming to terms with a drug addiction, and the self-destructive behavior that left him stranded.

Scott Waugh (“Act Of Valor”) will direct the film which will be one of the first to be released in select theaters in partnership with Barco’s immersive new Escape panoramic movie format. Filming begins next month in Utah.
