Christian Bale Will Star in Michael Mann’s Ferrari Biopic
Get ready to meet the man behind the cars.
Gentleman, start your engines. (Sorry.)
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.
