Katherine Brooks (“Waking Madison,” “Loving Annabelle”) is attached to direct “Freak”, the biopic of jockey Julie Krone for Gravity Films reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Brooks adapted the screenplay from Krone’s autobiography, “Riding for My Life,” which details her history as the only woman to have won a Triple Crown race and be inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
Krone is the most successful female jockey of all time, with nearly four thousand career wins and over $90 million in purse earnings.
Sophie Watts will produce along with Brooks. Shooting kicks off in April in New York and Michigan.
