"Ice Castles" Remake! Real-Life Figure Skater to Star! 


Remember the movie "Ice Castles?" The 1978 tearjerker starring Robbie Benson? The ballad by Melissa Manchester called "Looking Through the Eyes of Love" was even nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song.

The story? A young girl's dream of becoming a world-class figure skater is dashed after a tragic accident. But after much drama, crying, and spinning around, redemption occurs, the end.

Donald Wrye, the director of the original, is working on the remake. Figure skater Taylor Firth will headline the new film. Rob Mayes, Henry Czerny and figure skater Molly Oberstar will co-star. Michelle Kwan will appear in a cameo.

The film is being shot right now at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

If you want some good-old nostalgic piece, take a look at the video below featuring Manchester's soaring ballad, and FYI, I used to sing this song when I was a child :happy
