Batman actor will begin filming the role in Summer 2016
Enzo Ferrari is to be portrayed by Christian Bale in the upcoming movie, Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races.
The film is based on the Brock Yates’ novel, which takes an in-depth look into the life of the famous man himself at the helm of the Prancing Horse.
The film will be directed by Michael Mann, the chap behind Heat, Public Enemies and Collateral, with filming due to start next Summer.
Bale has been lined up to portray Ferrari, and is best known for his role as Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy.
Details about the movie are sketchy so far, however it is thought the film will be set in 1957 - the year Enzo’s son Alfredo died, and the same year the flamboyant Ferrari racer Alfonso de Portago lost his life racing for the Scuderia at the Mille Miglia. The crash also claimed the life of his co-driver, and nine spectators at the tragic event.
