This will be an awesome film to look forward to:

WaZabi Films co-founders Anick Poirier and Lorne Price have added the latest hot title to their slate and will launch pre-sales at AFM next week on

Frankel to star Jeremy Irons as the legendary racehorse trainer Sir Henry Cecil.

Irons, currently starring in the HBO hit Watchmen, will also produce the drama about the late postwar trainer who battled years of setbacks and illness and discovered a new lease on life when he worked with the titular British thoroughbred.

Cecil turned Frankel into a legend in the sport, undefeated in a 14-race career that culminated with victory in front of a capacity crowd at the Champion Stakes at Ascot Racecourse in 2012, shortly before the horse’s retirement.

“The story of Henry resonated with me immediately,” said Irons. ”The role allows me to portray a character with such resilience and depth. I also appreciate the deep relationship shared between Henry and Frankel, a true story of love and affection between a man and his horse.”
