John Rice Plans Hockey Film

John Rice (“Blown Away,” “Windtalkers”) will make his directorial debut on the hockey comedy “Stan’s Cup” says The Hollywood Reporter

The movie centers on a broken-down, once-great hockey player who gets a chance to finally fill his legendary father’s skates by giving his hometown, known as Hockeytown USA, a pseudo rematch of the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” game against a Russian team of ex-Olympians.

Rice also wrote the script while Sarah Finn is producing and casting. Shooting begins this Spring in in Warroad, Minnesota.
