While there are a lot of movies that get announced, go into development, have a script written, get a cast on crew on board, shoot the film and then release it, all in a matter of months to a couple of years, there are plenty of projects that seem to take forever to get out of development hell and finally make it onto the big screen.
Which brings us to the movie The Man Who Made It Snow, which was first announced back in 2013, before then going on a bit of a journey over the past three years. The last we heard, actor Jake Gyllenhaal was going to play the lead role in the film, while Antoine Fuqua was being lined up to direct the project, but that was over a year ago and there has still been no further progress on the film.
The Man Who Made It Snow has been officially described as "The true story of Max Mermelstein, a Jewish hotel engineer, who transforms a small mom and pop drug organization into a billion-dollar enterprise known as the Medellin Cartel...but the chickens come home to roost when the cartel asks him to murder a rival and he must escape with his family from a prison of his own doing." Certainly sounds like it could make for a good movie.
While we would love to see The Man Who Made It Snow move into production sooner rather than later, it does not seem like it is going to happen any time soon. Both Jake Gyllenhaal and Antoine Fuqua have very busy schedules so, unless they decide to replace them with new stars, we are just going to have to be patient and wait further developments. We will keep you posted!
