Dreamer: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elisabeth Shue, who next appears in Gregg Araki's indie Mysterious Skin, has signed on to star in John Gatins' Dreamer for DreamWorks and Tollin/Robbins Prods. Shooting starts this month on the project, which Hyde Park recently boarded to co-finance.
The film will follow the story of a Kentucky horse trainer and his daughter, who rescue a horse with a broken leg. The two then help nurse the animal back to health and take it to race in the Breeders' Cup. Shue will play the mother in the family.
Kris Kristofferson and Freddy Rodriguez also star. Gatins wrote the script.
