The inspirational true story of 2009 Kentucky Derby longshot Mine That Bird races to Oklahoma movie screens Friday with “50 to 1,” with Norman-bred actor Christian Kane, Skeet Ulrich and William Devane portraying the maverick New Mexican cowboys who took the crooked-legged racehorse all the way to Churchill Downs.
As previously reported, members of the cast and crew and even the real-life horse from the upcoming movie “50 to 1″ today wrapped up a three-day trek through Oklahoma on their “50 to 1″ bus tour.
The cast and filmmakers of the fact-based sports drama hit the road on a cross-country tour beginning March 17 to promote the major motion picture’s release.
Oklahoma stops on the bus tour included the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma State University and Eskimo Joe’s in Stillwater, and the Brady Arts District in Tulsa. The tour also included a stop by our NewsOK studios, where I got to interview actor Jamie McShane, director/producer/co-writer Jim Wilson and co-writer/co-producer Faith Conroy.
I’ll have more information on the tour and movie Friday; in the meantime, check out these featurettes and trailers for the film:
