Goalie- A Film On Terry Sawchuk

from the CP at Sportsnet,

A biopic tracing the brutal life and extraordinary career of goaltender Terry Sawchuk is hitting the big screen in March.

"Goalie" stars Mark O’Brien as the Winnipeg-born hockey great, whose run through the ’50s and ’60s established him as one of the winningest goaltenders in the National Hockey League’s history.

Kevin Pollak of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" plays general manager Jack Adams while O’Brien’s real-life wife Georgina Reilly of "Murdoch Mysteries" plays Sawchuk’s wife, Pat. The movie was shot in Sudbury, Ont.

Producers say the film follows Sawchuk from his youth in Winnipeg to Detroit, Boston, Toronto, Los Angeles, and New York between 1950 and 1970. That includes his 103 shutouts, the 400 stitches to his face, and tragic death at age 40 in 1970....

"Goalie" is set to open March 1 in Toronto and Vancouver, before hitting other cities in the spring.
