June Pictures and B Story are saddling up for a May start on Thoroughbred, a psychological thriller that marks the directorial debut of playwright-screenwriter Cory Finley. Olivia Cooke, who stars later this year in Ready Player One, stars with Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) and Green Room‘s Anton Yelchin. Financed by June Pictures, the film focuses on a volatile friendship between two suburban teenage girls who discover that a murder might solve both of their problems.
June’s Alex Saks and Andrew Duncan are producing with B Story’s Kevin J. Walsh, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. B Story’s Ryan Stowell will executive produce. The picture will shoot on the East Coast.
