First look at ‘Ferrari’: Adam Driver is unrecognizable as a race car driver

Penelope Cruz, Patrick Dempsey and Shailene Woodley star in Michael Mann’s upcoming Ferrari biopic.

From “House of Gucci” to the engines of “Ferrari,” Adam Driver channels his Italian accent once again.

The Academy Award nominee plays Enzo Ferrari, the real-life former race car driver whose tumultuous marriage to Laura Ferrari, played by Penelope Cruz, leads him to bet it all on one last race. Michael Mann is directing the biopic “Ferrari,” using a screenplay co-written by Troy Kennedy Martin (“The Italian Job”).

The four-time Oscar nominee Mann is also producing the film through Moto Pictures alongside PJ van Sandwijk and John Lesher, as well as John Friedberg, Lars Sylvest, Thorsten Schumacher, Gareth West and Thomas Hayslip, with significant support from the producers Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi. and his production services company, ILBE, and are joined by executive producer, Niels Juul.

The cast also includes Shailene Woodley, Patrick Dempsey, Jack O’Connell, Sarah Gadon, and Gabriel Leone.

The official synopsis reads: “Ferrari” is set during the summer of 1957. The former racing driver, Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy looms over the company he and his wife, Laura, built from scratch 10 years earlier. Their stormy marriage struggles with mourning for one child and recognition for another. He decides to make up for his losses by rolling the dice in a race: 1,000 miles through Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.

Proudly shooting on location in Italy, Mann brings his passion for the extraordinarily vivid characters that created a fusion of moving art and racing power that is Ferrari into an epic cinematic experience set in the volatile and dangerous world of auto racing in The 1950s.

Academy Award-winning cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt shot the film in Italy, along with Oscar-nominated production designer Maria Djurkovic, two-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Massimo Cantini Parrini, and two-time Oscar-winning editor of Oscar Pietro Scalia.

The film is based on the book “Enzo Ferrari – The Man and the Machine” by Brock Yates; Writer, director and producer Mann previously directed a commercial for Ferrari-branded California sports cars in 2008.

In addition to “Ferrari,” Mann is also developing a “Heat” sequel based on his novel. “It is totally planned to be a movie. Is it a modest film? No. Is it a very expensive series? No. It’s going to be a great movie,” Mann said earlier.
