Warners Acquires Stiefvater’s “Scorpio Races”

Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up the movie rights to Maggie Stiefvater’s young adult novel “The Scorpio Races” says Heat Vision.

The story involves mythological flesh-eating horses from Celtic lore, a scraggy island that hosts an annual race, a young horse trainer and a young woman (the first female to enter the competition) who eventually fall for each other.
