- Description'THE ICE HOTEL' IS NOW BEING ADAPTED TO SCREEN BY 2011 OSCAR-NOMINATED SCREENWRITERS OF 'THE FIGHTER, ' PAUL TAMASY & ERIC JOHNSON A family, reeling from their eldest son's death, escapes to the Ice Hotel, where an age-old, Arctic magic connects this world to the next... To twin siblings Izzie and Poe McGarity, big brother Rossa is t just the eldest of three children. He is a hero, a leader, a king. Or rather... he was a king. Before his mistake. Before he died. Haunted by visions of Rossa wherever they turn, the twins and their parents accept an invitation to the legendary Ice Hotel, an ermous structure built entirely from sw and ice, thousands of miles to the rth, in the Arctic Circle. What the grief-stricken McGaritys don't kw, is that the Ice Hotel will t only bring them face to face with frigid Arctic winds, powerful huskies built of fur and frost, magnetic fields, fluxes and levitation, mercenary Hunters bent on revenge and a storm thundering towards the polar cap with the force of the cosmos itself; but also, it will bring them closer than they could ever imagine, to Rossa's last, greatest, and most impossible wish.
