The English-language production is an adventure thriller about a 12-year-old big-city girl, Mickey Miller, who is destined to break a 300 year-old spell cast on a small Irish town and its inhabitants. On her long quest, Mickey must redeem a mysterious Black Knight and single-handedly save a precious herd of horses from a ruthless woman with evil plans.
Music is composed by Patrick Neil Doyle ("Brave"). Special effects supervisor is Urs Franzen ("Star Trek: Into Darkness," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides").
It is produced by Holland Harbour ("Last Conversation," "ID:A") Grand Pictures ("Death of a Superhero," "Puffball") and Longwood Pictures.
Julia Weber, head of sales at Global Screen, said, " 'The Legend of Longwood' has all the ingredients for a hit feature: beautiful horses, a magical world, adventure and a strong female hero to attract the kids, mystic settings, history, aristocracy, weddings and romance for the adults, and fanciful themes like magic, malediction, chivalry and black knights. All is nicely interwoven with our 'real' contemporary world, and in the end everything falls nicely into place."
Shooting took place in Wicklow County, Ireland, and Germany last year.
