“Edge of Tomorrow” and “Into the Woods” star Emily Blunt is attached to play the lead role in Khurram Longi’s bull-riding drama “Bronco Belle”.
Blunt will play Raylene Jackson, a stubborn but vulnerable and determined American woman with a chip on her shoulder who dreams of becoming a champion bull-rider.
Supported by an old-time trainer out to redeem himself and a hustler promoter, she battles through heartbreak, prejudice, broken dreams and bones to reach the top of the sport.
Allyson Seeger and George Isaac will produce. The production is now looking to cast two male leads alongside Blunt.
