Among the epic rivalries in motorsports, Ford v. Ferrari and the 1966 contest between Carroll Shelby and Kevin Miles at Ford and Enzo Ferrari and his entourage at the 24 Hours of LeMans is unsurpassed.
Actors Matt Damon and Christian Bale weren’t born yet when the respective drivers and carmakers from Ford and Ferrari matched their driving skills and risk-taking desires in the famous French race.
But the accomplished actors will portray the icons in the film FORD v. FERRARI. 20th Century Fox recently released the official trailer and poster for the pending film. It’s based on the story of Shelby, the visionary American car designer, and Miles, the fearless British-born driver.
They’re dispatched by Henry Ford II and the recently deceased Lee Iacocca with the mission of building the Ford GT40, a new racing car with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari. Thus the name, FORD v. Ferrari. They also battle corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to make a revolutionary race car.
FORD v. FERRARI also stars Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Rupe, Remo Girone and Ray McKinnon.
The film, directed by James Mangold, a screenplay by Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth and Jason Keller and produced Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and James Mangold, began filming July 30, 2018 at different locations in California, New Orleans, Atlanta, Savannah, Statesboro and Le Mans, France. It will be released by The Walt Disney Studios on November 15 in theaters nationwide.
