Walden Media and Johnson Trek Cruelest Miles

ON

Walden Media is reteaming with “The Chronicles of Narnia” producer Mark Johnson to tell the true story of a team of men and sled dogs that braved temperatures of 60 below to save an Alaskan town from a deadly epidemic in 1925, says Variety.

Walden acquired rights to “The Cruelest Miles: The Heroic Story of Dogs and Men in a Race Against an Epidemic,” a book by Gay and Laney Salisbury.

Sean O’Keefe and Will Staples will write the script.

The novel tells the story of how a team of 20 men and more than 200 sled dogs undertook a 674-mile race against time to deliver a vaccine to combat an incipient epidemic of diphtheria afflicting a Gold Rush town deep in Alaska.
