Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Subject of New Movie

New book on Toronto mayor headed for the bigscreen

Blue Ice Pictures has acquired film and TV rights to Toronto Star reporter Robyn Doolittle’s new book “Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story,” it was announced today.

The screen adaptation of the Penguin Canada book about Toronto’s controversial major will be produced by Blue Ice’s Daniel Iron (“Away From Her”) and Lance Samuels (“The Book of Negroes”). Blue Ice is headquartered in Toronto, with offices in L.A., London and South Africa.

Doolittle, who appeared on “The Daily Show” Feb. 6, was one of three journalists to view the infamous “crack video” that brought Ford to worldwide attention. Doolittle is represented by Anne McDermid & Associates and Great North Artists Management.

“If you tried to make this story up, people would think it was over the top,” commented Doolittle. “The Rob Ford investigation is something I’ve been working on for more than two years. It’s so much more than just a crack video and YouTube clips. I am excited that Danny and Lance share that sense of it, and am really looking forward to working with them.”

Ford is running for mayor in the 2014 Toronto municipal election.
