A modern retelling of Sewell’s 19th-century novel, Black Beauty tells of the titular horse who is born free in the American West. When she is captured and taken away from family, her story intertwines with that of 17-year old Jo Green, similarly grieving over the loss of her parents. The two slowly develop a bond that is built on love, respect, and mutual healing.
The film stars Mackenzie Foy (Interstellar, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms) as Jo Green and Oscar winner Kate Winslet (The Reader, Steve Jobs) voices Black Beauty. The movie also stars Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) as John Manly and Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) as Mrs. Winthorp.
Ashley Avis (Adolescence, Deserted) wrote the screenplay and directed the movie. Black Beauty was filmed last year in South Africa.
Jeremy Bolt (Polar, Monster Hunter) of JB Pictures and Constantin’s Robert Kulzer (Polar) produced the project along with South African producer Genevieve Hofmeyr (Mad Max: Fury Road) of Moonlighting Films. Executive producers include Martin Moszkowicz, Edward Winters, and Jon Brown with Dylan Tarason serving as co-producer.
