Motion Picture

Paddle to the Amazon – the film – is currently in the works through Insight Productions. Insight optioned the film rights for the book and their goal is to produce a major motion picture. Securing a screenplay writer for the movie is the first order of business. James Cameron – Titanic – was approached for the project but he’s currently committed to a number of upcoming films. An Italian writer was recently introduced to the story and has shown interest – but no confirmation yet. Stay tuned!



“It was an ordinary 21-foot canoe. They were an ordinary family–a divorced father and his two teenaged sons. This is the amazing, true story of their incredible 12,181-mile canoe trip from Winnipeg to the mouth of the Amazon River. Exquisite images . . . courageous, sometimes sensitive, often exciting, and always immediate . . . A model expeditionary journal.”
