  • 'Secretariat' 10/8/10

    Based on the real-life 1973 Triple Crown winner, the film – which will hit theaters in October – stars Diane Lane as Penny Chenery, a wife and mother whose determination helped lead Secretariat to victory.

    "She was a very savvy businesswoman," says Lane, 45, who to prepare for the role spent time with Chenery, now 88. John Malkovich plays Secretariat's trainer Lucien Lauren.

    As for Lane's relationship with her equine costars, "each horse has its own personality," says the actress, who worked with several different horses in the role of Secretariat. "I had my favorite [horse], and mostly my relationship with the horse was a friendly one. He's in the top 10 of my costars, for sure!"

    Walt Disney Pictures' "Secretariat," the story of the legendary Triple Crown-winning horse and his owner Penny Chenery.

    The film is directed by Randall Wallace ("The Man In the Iron Mask" "We Were Soldiers,") and stars DIANE LANE ("Nights in Rodanthe," "Untraceable," "Unfaithful") and JOHN MALKOVICH ("Burn After Reading," "Changeling"). Based on the remarkable true story, "Secretariat" chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father's Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery - with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (Malkovich) - manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

    The cast also includes DYLAN WALSH (TV's "Nip/Tuck," "The Lake House," "We Were Soldiers") as Chenery's skeptical husband, and DYLAN BAKER ("Spider-Man 2," "Spider-Man 3," "Revolutionary Road") as Chenery's brother, a Harvard professor who questions her abilities. MARGO MARTINDALE ("The Savages," "Million Dollar Baby") portrays Chenery's assistant, and NELSAN ELLIS ("True Blood") plays Eddie Sweat, Secretariat's groom. OTTO THORWARTH, a real-life jockey who, through mid-July 2009, had more than 1300 wins, portrays Ron Turcotte, Secretariat's famed jockey. FRED THOMPSON ("Law & Order," "Die Hard 2," "In the Line of Fire") plays Bull Hancock, a master horse breeder who was president of the Racing League and a friend of Chenery's father. SCOTT GLENN ("The Bourne Ultimatum," "Nights in Rodanthe," "W.") plays Chenery's father, and AJ MICHALKA ("Aly & AJ" group) portrays her daughter. KEVIN CONNOLLY ("Entourage") and ERIC LANGE ("Lost") are featured as the reporters who first recognize Secretariat's potential, and JAMES CROMWELL ("24," "W.") portrays a wealthy financier and pillar of horse racing.

    The film was shot on location in Kentucky and Louisiana.
