Diane Lane to Star in Secretariat

ON

Variety says that Diane Lane is set to star in Secretariat, the Disney film about the relationship between the 1973 Triple Crown-winning racehorse and his owner, Penny Chenery.

Randall Wallace is directing the film this fall from a script by Mike Rich.

While Secretariat showed potential before the horse became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years, Chenery’s rise to become “first lady of racing” was the real underdog story.

Lane will play Chenery, a mother and housewife who knew little about horse racing when she took over her ailing father’s farm in Virginia.
