Canadian hockey movie to open TIFF

The Canadian movie Score: A Hockey Musical, starring Olivia Newton-John, will open the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th. The world premiere of the movie will be the first Gala Presentation at the festival.  It tells the story of a teenage hockey phenom who lives the quintessential Canadian dream of being discovered on the ice and goes from obscurity to fame overnight. It’ll also features cameos from an impressive lineup of Canadian music, broadcast and hockey stars, including Nelly Furtado, Walter Gretzky, George Stroumboulopoulos and Theo Fleury. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off our 35th anniversary Festival than with Score: A Hockey Musical,” says Cameron Bailey, Co-Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. “It continues our tradition of launching the very best in Canadian filmmaking — although in 35 years this is our first musical romance about hockey.”

    Will Olivia come out to the center of the ice in her Sandy skin tight black spandex outfit with Frenchie poofing up her hair??

    Doubt it, but you’re sure to be in for the same bad acting.
