Hollywood and Washington go to Iceland

Hollywood and Washington combine forces to bring Reykjavik Summit to the big screen. Director Ridley Scott has joined the film project about the Summit which marked the beginning of the end of the Cold War. The major full length motion picture is on Ronald Reagan's historic demand of Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall" And the elimination of an entire class of nuclear weapons, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. The Executive Producers are Jere Sullivan, European Vice Chairman for Edelman, the world's largest independent communications firm and Ken Adelman, foreign policy expert and part of the negotiating team for Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik and venture capitalist Craig Sheftell, of Fallbrook Capital. Current plans are to begin production of the film in mid 2008 with completion by year's end. Ireland has a small but well organized film industry which has been so far mostly presented in Hollywood by insider Sigurjon Sighvatsson. Lets hope The Smokey Bay Project will boost Ireland and its film industry despite the head producers being novices to the Hollywood culture. http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/idUS85720+07-Jan-2008+PRN20080107
