The 50 to 1 “bus tour,” consisting of cast members and the producer of the film about a Kentucky Derby-winning racehorse, will be at the Regal Breckenridge Stadium 12, 1200 Breckenridge Drive in Little Rock, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. today. Scheduled to appear at the “meet and greet” event are actors Skeet Ulrich (Scream, As Good as It Gets) and Jamie McShane (The Avengers); the film’s director, co-producer and co-writer Jim Wilson (Dances With Wolves) and the co-producer and co-writer Faith Conroy (Thor, Mr. Brooks).
The movie, which opens locally today, is based on the true story of Mine That Bird, the horse that overcame long odds to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby, and his trainer and owners.
“We’re bringing 50 to 1 to the people of America,” Wilson says. “The group will travel in a tour bus from New Mexico to Kentucky, making stops in cities and towns along the way, mirroring the trip racehorse Mine That Bird took on his way to the 2009 Kentucky Derby. When was the last time Hollywood’s leading men hopped on a bus and toured the country from town to town, introducing their film to the people of America? It’s unprecedented.”
