Adam Driver to Portray Enzo Ferrari in Upcoming Biopic
The long-awaited story of Enzo Ferrari is finally coming to the big screen, with acclaimed actor Adam Driver confirmed to play the titular automotive icon.
The film, aptly titled “Ferrari,” is set to hit cinemas later this year and marks the realization of a project that director Michael Mann has been developing since 2000.
For Mann, known for directing films like “Heat” and “Collateral,” this biopic is a highly anticipated return to filmmaking after a hiatus since “Blackhat” in 2015.
In the released promo shots, the 39-year-old Driver looks remarkably aged and stern, perfectly embodying the much older Enzo Ferrari.
Notably, this will be Driver’s second Italian-set biopic, following his appearance in the 2021 epic “House of Gucci.”
Enzo Ferrari’s Colorful Life
The biopic will delve into the colorful life of Enzo Ferrari, who lived for 90 years from 1898 to 1988.
His journey was marked by various roles, from being a racing driver to becoming the founder of the renowned motor-racing team that carries his name, as well as establishing his car dealership.
He was widely known as “Il Commendatore” or “Il Drake” due to his commanding presence, trademark sunglasses, and distinctive raspy voice.
In the 2019 film “Le Mans 66,” Ferrari was portrayed by Remo Girone.
Focus on the 1957 Mille Miglia Race
Contrary to focusing solely on Formula 1, a domain where Ferrari’s team had often dominated, the film will spotlight the dramatic 1957 Mille Miglia race.
This legendary event involved a grueling 1,000-mile race across Italy.
However, this particular edition of the race ended tragically when Ferrari driver Alfonso de Portago suffered a tire blowout, leading to a devastating crash into a grandstand, resulting in the loss of nine lives, including his own.
Release Date and Stellar Cast
“Ferrari” is scheduled for a Christmas Day release in the United States, and it is expected to hit UK cinemas on Boxing Day.
Aside from Adam Driver’s portrayal of Enzo Ferrari, the film boasts an impressive cast, including Sarah Gadon, Penelope Cruz, and Shailene Woodley.
With such talented actors on board, the film promises to offer an engaging and captivating depiction of the iconic automotive figure’s life.
Premiere at the 2023 Venice Film Festival
Film enthusiasts can anticipate the premiere of “Ferrari” at the prestigious 2023 Venice Film Festival, where the movie will be showcased to audiences and critics alike.
As the buzz surrounding the film continues to grow, fans of both Enzo Ferrari’s legacy and captivating cinema eagerly await its release to witness this legendary story unfold on the silver screen.
