Ferrari Film: cast, photos | POPSUGAR Entertainment UK
Adam Driver once again plays the offspring within a very famous Italian family whose name has become synonymous with a luxury brand. No, it’s not a “House of Gucci” sequel. Driver transforms into Enzo Ferrari in Michael Mann’s upcoming film, simply titled “Ferrari.” The production is currently filming in Modena, Italy, and on October 7, they released two first photos of Driver on set.
“Ferrari” is set in 1957 when Enzo, a former racing driver, and his wife, Laura (Penélope Cruz), are going through a moment of crisis. The company they started, Ferrari, is on the verge of bankruptcy and their marriage is in trouble. Enzo, who started Ferrari as a racing-only business before he started selling cars, decides to take a big leap into the 1957 Mille Miglia race. The famous race is nearly a thousand miles long and marks a one-way -return between Rome and Brescia.
Nowadays, Ferrari continues to sell cars and, of course, run a racing business. The team is competitive in Formula 1, although it has not won a title since the mid-2000s. As interest in the sport has grown, many F1-related projects have been sparked these last years. As well as “Ferrari”, Netflix has the reality series “Drive to Survive” which follows current drivers, and Brad Pitt and Lewis Hamilton – arguably the most successful F1 driver of all time – are working on a sports film for Apple. There was also “Ford v. Ferrari” from 2019, which was about Ford’s quest to beat Ferrari in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Since the movie is currently filming, it’s not expected until next year, but here’s what we know about “Ferrari” so far.

In addition to Driver and Cruz, the film also stars Shailene Woodley as Lina Lardi, Patrick Dempsey as chauffeur Piero Taruffi, Jack O’Connell as chauffeur Peter Collins, Sarah Gadon as Chauffeur Linda Christian and Gabriel Leone as Fon De Portago.
