Three sign on for 'Secretariat'

Dylan Walsh, John Malkovich, Scott Glenn join cast

Dylan Walsh, John Malkovich and Scott Glenn are saddling up for "Secretariat," the story of the horse that won the 1973 Triple Crown.

Diane Lane stars as the horse's owner Penny Tweedy, the housewife who broke though a gender barrier to usher Secretariat to greatness.

Walsh plays Lane's husband, a successful attorney who is accustomed to his wife being at his beck and call.

Malkovich plays a charismatic trainer who underestimates the power of Secretariat; Glenn is a southern-bred aristocrat who loses the horse in a coin toss.

Randall Wallace is directing from a script by Mike Rich. Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray are producing. The picture begins shooting this week in Louisiana and Kentucky.

Walsh, repped by Gersh and McGowan Management, next stars in Screen Gem's "Stepfather." Penn Badgley and Amber Hear also appear in the thriller, which opens Oct. 16. Walsh also stars in FX's "Nip/Tuck," which returns Oct. 14.

Malkovich, repped by WME and Finch & Partners, next plays the bad guy in Warners' adaptation of DC Comics' Western comic "Jonah Hex."

ICM-repped Glenn is about to shoot Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch."
