Sean Astin's horse racing movie is due for release in US theaters on October 28. "And They're Off!" stars Sean as unsuccessful race horse trainer, Dusty Sanders. Dusty's last chance of success is with a horse named Caveat ridden by his psycho former girlfriend, Dee, played by Saturday Night Live alum Cheri Oteri. According to Sean, Dusty uses ”many oblique techniques for working with his horse that are non-traditional. He’s not averse to Eastern traditions or other techniques that I’m sure once the horse racing community gets a good look at this film, you’ll find will be brought into the mainstream. For example in football, everybody knows that the athletes spend time watching tape to study the opponents. Well, Dusty has his horse do the same thing. It’s that kind of extra effort that makes the difference, he’d say.”

Sounds like a fun movie!

Sean's new movie project

Sean will be starring as Sgt. Tanner in "The Boys of Abu Ghraib" an independent movie has begun filming in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Think "Hurt Locker" for genre.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1965162/


Based on the true events that occurred at Abu Ghraib in 2003, the film is about a group of young soldiers thrown into a hellish environment, with little but each other to help them cope with the challenges they face.

All American Jack Farmer leaves behind a fulfilling life to serve his country in Iraq at the peak of the war on terrorism. Stationed at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison, he is pushed to his limit as a daily bombardment of insurgent mortar attacks continually threaten his life. When an opportunity arises to work for the Military Police, Farmer jumps at it and finds himself behind the walls of the infamous Hard Site, a compound for the highest priority terrorists. He’s introduced to the world of military intelligence by Sergeant Tanner, whose harsh, and sometimes inhumane treatment of detainees raises doubts within Farmer about the Army’s procedure.
