The project, based on the biography Enzo Ferrari, The Man, the Cars, the Race, had long been in the works with Mann attached, but without a star or U.S. studio.
The movie be set in 1957, when Ferrari faced a "brutal challenge to his survival." Production will begin in Italy next summer. "Several" actresses are in reportedly in talks to co-star — we'll likely find out who in the very near future.
Keep yourself busy in the meantime by looking at photos of Ferraris here.
