Luke Perry and Armand Assante have joined the cast of the horse racing drama "A Fine Step" for Insomnia Media Group.

According to The Hollywood Reporter: Insomnia Media Group is moving forward with "A Fine Step," which is a drama about a champion horse rider injured in a car accident and the woman who takes over the training and riding of Fandango, his prized Paso Fino horse. The project, whose title might change, has begun principal photography in Memphis.

Jonathan Meyers is directing from a screenplay by Dennis Sonnenschein and Doc Suggs. Bret Saxon is producing with Insomnia's Ari Palitz. Jon Yarbrough Jr., while Doug Ames, Ron Coleman and Justin Gullett executive produce.

Cylk Cozart ("16 Blocks"), Justin Baldoni ("Heroes"), Leonor Varela ("The Man in the Iron Mask") and Amy Lavere ("Black Snake Moan") co-star.

Assante and Perry aren’t two actors you’d think of right away when casting a film, but both are solid performers with a lot of experience. Assante was great in his supporting role in “American Gangster” and did a nice job back in the day when he portrayed John Gotti.

Most people remember Perry from his “90210” days, when he was the biggest hunk on TV. He hasn’t done much in the past few years, so it will be interesting to see how he takes on this role.

Principal photography is already underway in Memphis.
