Diane Lane Horses Around With "Secretariat"

"Secretariat", the new horse racing feature from Walt Disney Pictures and Mayhem Pictures is directed by Randall Wallace, starring Diane Lane as horse owner 'Penny Chenery' and John Malkovich as horse trainer 'Lucien Laurin'.

The film is based on author William Nack's "Secretariat: The Making of a Champion", with Nack also receiving a screen credit as consultant.

Premise of the movie follows Chenery and her US Hall of Fame racehorse, 'Secretariat' who, in 1973, became the first horse in twenty-five years to win the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, with Chenery taking over the financially troubled 'Meadow Stable' from her ailing father to guide the horse through his Triple Crown season.

The film is scheduled to be released October 8, 2010.
