Dreamer: According to The Hollywood Reporter, DreamWorks is in talks to pick up the project Dreamer in turnaround from Warner Bros. Pictures with John Gatins attached to make his directorial debut and Kurt Russell on board to topline.

Tollin/Robbins Prods. is producing the true story-inspired project about a Kentucky horse trainer and his 11-year-old son 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. Russell is set to play the horse trainer.

Production is pegged for a September start in Louisiana.
