The biographical film about a part of Enzo Ferrari’s life was approved to become a reality starring Adam Driver and Penelope Cruz
Production will begin in May, with filming taking place in Italy at Modena and Emilia Romagna.
The right car themed movies are few. But the success of films like Rush and Ford v Ferrari proves that they can reach a wider audience. So the next Hollywood car movie begins to materialize.
The movie “Ferrari” has been in the works for the last two decades, but now it will start shooting in May. The biographical direction is by Michael Mann (Miami Vice, Texas Killing Fields, Ford v Ferrari), for whom it is a work of passion. The script will be written by him Troy Kennedy Martin (The Italian Job) and will follow the story of Enzo Ferrari from the summer of 1957.
The case concerns the imminent bankruptcy of Ferrari, in conjunction with the collapse of Enzo’s marriage and the aftermath of Dino’s son’s death, from muscular dystrophy at just 24 years old. The film will also describe her Ferrari’s decision to take part in that year’s Mille Miglia race, which was the last.
Enzo Ferrari will be played by Adam Driver (known from Star Wars and House Of Gucci). It will be interesting to see how Driver, who is 38 years old, will play the role of Enzo, who was 59 years old in 1957. Driver replaces Hugh Jackman, who was appointed to play the founder of the Italian car industry.
Penelope Cruz will star as Ferrari’s wife, Laura, while Shailene Woodley will play his mistress, Lina Lardy. THE Enzo’s once illegitimate son, Piero, plays a central role in the story, which is based on his book 1991, Ferrari – The Man, The Cars, The Races, The Machine, written by automotive journalist Brock Yates.
