Film: Gold in the Snow

(Click image to enlarge)

Another Klondike gold rush film, this one possibly starring Robert Redford, is in pre-production. This one is called, Gold in the Snow, based on the 2004 book, L’or sous la neige (Gold in the Snow) by Nicolas Vanier. The story takes place in the Klondike in 1897 just before the main gold discovery. There is no mention of Skagway or Soapy Smith although Soapy was in Alaska at the time. Who knows, maybe they'll write him in.
