Euros Lyn (“Black Mirror”) will direct. Neil McKay has adapted the story, which is based on real events, for the big screen.
The real-life drama was previously the subject of Louise Osmond’s documentary “Dark Horse,” which, like “Dream Horse,” was backed by Film4. “Three Identical Strangers” producer Raw is making the film. Warner Bros. has pre-bought the U.K. distribution rights. Cornerstone Films will handle sales elsewhere.
Ingenious Media and Ffilm Cymru Wales are also backing the movie.
“I grew up in the Welsh valleys where everyone knows this story – it’s a local legend,” Lyn said.
