Robert De Niro will be honored to play Enzo Ferrari in the upcoming film titled ”Ferrari”.
When the Italian magazine Il Messaggero, asked De Niro about the movie, his answer was “It is an honor and a joy to tell the life of an extraordinary man who revolutionized the automotive world.” He also stated: “It’s a story based on creativity, courage and destined to thrill audiences of every country and every age.”
”Ferrari” will highlight the best of Enzo`s Ferrari life, overshadowing other unsuccessful movies released so far on this topic. Apparently the movie will have a consistent budget and will follow Enzo’s life story from the 1940’s until he passed away, in the 80’s.
Robert de Niro considers this movie as one of the most important projects so far. Due out most probably in 2016, the movie will have Gianni Bozzacchi as the producer and has already attracted a great interest from Clint Eastwood in directing.
