It looks like Fox’s Untitled Ford vs. Ferrari film is finally ready to go into production in the hands’ director James Mangold. Recently, we came across new details about the movie’s production and the locations it will be filmed at.
Thanks to Production Weekly’s recent listing, the untitled Ford vs. Ferrari project’s working title has been revealed to be ‘SPOILERS’. A fitting title indeed as its still unknown which source material Mangold will be using for the project.
The film is based on a true story which centers upon the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari during the 1966 Le Mans World Championship. The film follows a team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and his British driver, Ken Miles (Christian Bale). The two are tasked with a mission by Henry Ford II, who instructs them to build an entirely new automobile from scratch, with the capacity to beat Ferrari at Le Mans.
According to the production listing, the untitled Ford vs. Ferrari project will begin principal photography on July 30. The film will be shooting in multiple locations starting in California, New Orleans and Atlanta.
Filming is expected to wrap on October 29. The listing also states that the film crew is planning on shooting for 67 days in California, with locations in Kern, Orange, Santa Rosa and San Bernardino counties.
Other casts attached to the project are Outlander star Caitriona Balfe set to star as Miles’ wife. Quiet Place breakout actor Noah Jupe as Miles’ son.
A report in June did reveal that Jon Bernthal was in negotiations to join the project. If the deal went through, Variety states that The Punisher star will be playing as Lee Lacocca, the person who spearheaded development of the Ford Mustang.
House of cards actor Paul Sparks was also in talks to play as Henry Ford II’s right hand in the untitled movie. It is still unsure if the actor has signed the deal.
