Focus Features’ new YA adaptation, THE SCORPIO RACES, has its director. Matt Sobel has landed the job helming what has been described as “The Hunger Games on horseback” on the back of his successful Sundance drama, Take Me to the River.
The film will be adapted from Maggie Stiefvater’s bestselling novel in which a young racer on the fictional island of Thisby prepares for a vicious race with a legendary horse trainer. The race is run on water horses and jockeys will pay any price to win.
