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.
I have updated the gallery with high-quality posters and production stills from Green Room. Also, check out a new official clip from the movie and a featurette featuring Patrick Stewart.
Back in 2014, director David Karlak launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to make this action/sci-fi story come to life. This month, the 5-minute short film finally debuted! Make sure you give it a watch as it’s a very interesting take on robots-versus-humans story. I have also added screencaptures into the gallery.
