One of the most influential figures in the history of fast, high-performance cars is set to have his story told on the big screen. The legendary, Enzo Ferrari himself, the founder of the Italian manufacturer of the same name, will have his remarkable story told by one of the greatest directors Hollywood has ever seen, Michael Mann. With Mann at the helm and Academy Award winning actor Christian Bale set to portray the eccentric Ferrari, the Enzo Ferrari biopic appears primed for a first place finish.
For director Michael Mann, the Enzo Ferrari film is a true labor of love. The acclaimed director has reportedly been working on developing this film for over 15 years now. It’s only now, with the right actor, a proper script in place, and distribution from Paramount, that he can finally make it happen. Mann experienced a great deal of success over the last two decades with similar biopics and biographical films such as: Ali, The Insider, and Public Enemies, and he seems eager to bring Mr. Ferrari’s personal tale to life. While the general public may know Enzo as the founder of a company that makes high-end, Italian sports cars, his life was full of so much more. He was a passionate man who loved cars and high-speed racing and lived a life that is more than worthy of being told on the big screen.
With the film scheduled to begin filming in the summer of 2016, fans shouldn’t expect to see the film in theaters for some time now. If you simply can’t wait that long to satisfy your Ferrari fix, don’t fret, because SPEEDVEGAS will be open and ready to go in the spring of 2016. Be sure to get your reservations in now to get a firsthand look at what Mr. Ferrari’s company has accomplished so far in the world of speed.
