Secretariat Film Moving Like a Tremendous Machine?

Disney has officially announced that a film about Secretariat is on the way; the film will focus on Penny Chenery and the production team is working closely with William Nack to get the script moving. Nack’s Secretariat: The Making of a Champion is perhaps the finest portrait of a racehorse (and his connections) one could come across; his elegant prose and great enthusiasm should add real depth to the project. (I’m currently reading his new Ruffian book, which is equally well-crafted if rather more devastating).

I’ll check with my Disney connections to see if I can find out any more details…it sounds as though filming could begin later this year.
