Bob Berney’s Picturehouse Takes Distribution on Golfing Origin story

Shooting of 'Tommy's Honor' set for Scotland

Bob Berney’s Picturehouse is in final negotiations for North American rights to “Tommy’s Honor,” a father and son story about the pioneers of modern-day professional golf and its 19th century beginnings at St. Andrews, Scotland.

Wind Chill Media’s Jim Kreutzer, Bob Last of Holdings Ecosse and Jason Connery are producing the film, which will be shot in Scotland with casting currently underway. Production is anticipated to commence in the spring and summer.

Connery (“The Devil’s Tomb”) will direct from a screenplay by Pamela Marin and Kevin Cook, adapted from Cook’s book, which won the U.S. Golf Association’s Book of the Year award in 2007.

The story centers on Tom Morris’ relationship with his son Tommy, who matched his father’s achievement with four British Open wins (the first at the age of 17).

Picturehouse re-opened its doors with founder Berney (pictured above) last year and has an exclusive, multi-year output deal with Netflix. It released “Metallica Through the Never” in the fall.
