Pic, skedded for a summer 2012 release, is adapted from a portion of author Deanne Stillman’s tome “Mustang: The Saga of the Wild Horse in the American West” and examines the life of animal-rights activist Velma Johnston, who helped save the lives of hundreds of equines.
Jerry Wingfield will write the script while Stillman will produce.
