There will be two actors taking on the role of Enzo Ferrari in two upcoming movies.
Former Batman Christian Bale has also agreed to play Enzo Ferrari in a biopic directed by Michael Mann. Bale joins Robert De Niro, who will also play Enzo Ferrari in a separate movie that is expected to hit movie theaters next year.
Mann’s movie will reportedly take place in 1957, the same year that a Ferrari race car crashed while competing in the Mille Miglia, killing the driver and another driver as well as nine spectators in the crowd.
Deadline reports that Michael Mann has been trying to get the biopic off the ground for the past 15 years and the movie will be based on the 1991 book by Brock Yates titled Enzo Ferrari: The Man, The Cars, The Races, The Machine.
The movie that De Niro will star in is simply titled Ferrari and covers a wide span of the company’s history, from 1945 to the 1980s. Gianni Bozzacchi will be the producer of that film.
