Actor Adam Driver is almost unrecognizable in the first photos of the feature film Ferrari. The film is directed by Michael Mann, known for, among others, heat (1995), Public Enemies (2009) and The Last of the Mohicans (1992). The first images can now be seen.
The first two pictures
Mann’s latest film is about legendary car manufacturer Ferrari and the race that helped shape his legacy. Oscar-nominated Driver stars as Enzo Ferrari. Shooting has not yet been completed and is currently underway in Italy. For the first time we can now see the character Enzo. He has slicked back hair, with typical fifties sunglasses. In the second photo, Driver can be seen in a rainstorm at the start of the iconic race that is central to the film.
Ferrari both private and business in crisis
Set in 1957, Ferrari is about the period in Enzo’s life when both his business and his marriage are in crisis. Enzo’s wife is played by Penelope Cruz. Amid this financial and marital turmoil, Enzo decides to risk it all by competing in the iconic Mille Miglia, a 1000-mile race across Italy. Driver Piero Taruffi, played by Patrick Dempsey, will take the wheel. There are also roles for Shailene Woodley, Jack O’Connell, Sarah Gadon and Gabriel Leone.
In the summer of 1957, all the dynamic forces in the life of the Italian sports car entrepreneur Enzo Ferrari come together…
It is not yet known when Ferrari will appear in cinemas.
