Thunder Man: The Don Aronow Story

Was really looking forward to this film but it doesn’t appear to be released yet?
Does anyone know if it is possible to get hold of it, or what happened to it?

There was a film called "Thunderboat Row" based on Don's story shown on Channel four a few years ago.
Unfortunately my VHS copy got wrecked
They are supposed to be making a new film of his life..............

The site hasn't been updated since the end of last year.

I did manage to google a torrent some while back, but could never get on to it.

Anyone come across `Smugglers & Speedboats` - The Don Aronow story.
