ESPN’s John Spano Movie ‘Big Shot’ to Premiere April 19th
Kevin Schultz , Islanders Point Blank:
Actor and Islanders fan Kevin Connolly has been working on a documentary for ESPN on John Spano, the fraud who bought the Islanders in the mid-90s. The film was first announced back in August and is ready to premiere on April 19th at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival in New York City, according to the Hollywood Reporter:
Added Connelly: “I’ve always thought the expression ‘passion project’ was kind of a cliche until I started working on Big Shot for ESPN. Working side by side and spending time with guys that I literally grew up idolizing has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The whole experience, including having the film premiere in New York at the festival, has been a dream come true.”
The film receives a high honor as being the lead for the festival, which will feature nine different sports films. Hopefully they used some of your content submissions.
