Toni Collette and Damian Lewis will star in Euros Lyn’s Dream Horse for UK producer RAW and Film4.
Cornerstone Films is handling international sales and Warner Bros has taken UK distribution rights.
Neil McKay wrote the screenplay. The story follows a woman’s dream to breed and raise a champion racehorse on the allotment of her forgotten Welsh village - and of how she brings her entire community with her.
Producers are RAW’s Katherine Butler with Tracy O’Riordan. Executive producers are Piers Vellacott for Raw, Daniel Battsek and Ollie Madden for Film4, Peter Touche and Stephen Dailey for Ingenious Media, and Pauline Burt for Ffilm Cymru Wales.
Film4 developed the project and are funding with Ingenious Media, Ffilm Cymru Wales.
The story was previously told in the documentary Dark Horse, which was also backed by Film4 and won the World Cinema Audience Award at Sundance in 2015.
