Adam Driver to be Enzo Ferrari in a Movie Shot in Modena

Enzo Ferrari carved out a niche in the automotive industry, leaving a great impact and legacy on the world. His achievements mean history will never forget him. It is only proper for movies to be made to immortalize the legend, with Adam Driver starring in the latest movie.

The movie is dedicated to Enzo Ferrari, a public figure of intrigue. It is dedicated to a life defined by challenges and greatness. Enzo Anselmo Guiseppe Maria Ferrari, the Italian racing driver, engineer and entrepreneur, was born in Modena city, Emilia-Romagna region, Italy, on February 18, 1898. His car company, “Ferrari”, which he named after himself, is his greatest legacy in the automotive and racing industry. He died on August 14, 1988, at the age of 90.

Enzo Ferrari was known for many things, but racing was the most peculiar in his early life. His racing career peaked when he won the “Circuito del Savio” trophy, his first, in 1923; in 1924, Coppa Acerbo in Pescara; and in 1928, the 2nd Circuit of Modena. In 1931, he ended his racing career and fully transitioned into engineering. Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari’s luxury sports car, will go on to rule both track and road, becoming a symbol of speed, prestige, and wealth.

Enzo Ferrari’s life, origin, achievements, and inspiration revolved around his home town, Modena. There isn’t any place best suited for shooting the movie. The canary yellow, which serves as the background to the black, prancing horse – the Ferrari logo, was inspired by Modena’s color. He also founded “Scuderia Ferrari”, a racing club, in 1929 and Auto Avio Construzioni, which would later become the Ferrari company, in 1939. After his death, the Enzo Ferrari House Museum in Modena became dedicated to his life and work.

The shooting of the movie dedicated to Enzo Ferrari has started in Modena. Movie Studio STXfilms announced the movie, “Ferrari,” which will be about Enzo Ferrari’s life. The movie will be directed by Michael Mann, the director of “Heat” and “The Last of the Mohicans”. Award-winning actors Adam Driver, Penelope Cruz, and Shailene Woodley will star in the movie. The movie’s photography has already begun this spring in Modena, Italy. Adam Driver will be playing the role of il Commendatore or The Drake, which won’t be easy. It’s about time he started working on his Italian! The award-winning actor is one of the best for this play and lead role, starring in popular movies like “Star Wars”, “House of Gucci” and “Marriage Story”. Penelope Cruz will play the role of Enzo’s wife, Laura Ferrari, and Shailene Woodley, his mistress, Lina Lardi. After the death of Enzo’s first son, his only surviving son, Piero Ferrari, was born by Lardi, his mistress. These are all great actors, and the movie is bound for great success.

The movie will focus on challenging and difficult moments in Enzo Ferrari’s early life in 1957. Enzo’s life was characterized by challenges, and this year was one of the most difficult. In that year, a Ferrari 335S lost a tire during the Mille Miglia race, careening into a crowd where the driver, co-driver, and nine other spectators’ lives were lost. Enzo and his company almost went bankrupt and were put on trial for manslaughter as a result of the event. These were some of the challenges the great Enzo Ferrari faced, which were stepping stones in his legacy. They are worth recreating in movies today for their inspiring nature.

Locations that will be included in the movie include Maranello. Maranello is a town which lies in the south of Modena and is home to the Ferrari automobile factory. The town has a rich ancient history, known also for its technological innovation, the Ferrari Museum, and Factories. Other delightful sights in the town include the Church of Maranello and the Maranello Cultural Library; the MABIC. The fine Emilian cuisine in Maranello also goes without mentioning, with tourists not only feeding their eyes and passions, but teasing their palates and filling their stomachs with delicious delicacies. The town is rich in Ferrari history. It is a great place to celebrate the founder of Ferrari as we know it today. The town tells the story of the luxury car’s past, present, and future. The movie dedicated to Enzo Ferrari would be incomplete without featuring Maranello. It should also be visited at least once by enthusiasts, especially in spring and fall.

Modena and the original home of Enzo Ferrari is now a museum dedicated to his life and work. The Enzo Ferrari Museum, which opened in 2012 in Modena, made use of two (2) spaces: Enzo’s birth home and his father’s historic workshop, covering 2,500 sqm of land. The color of Modena, yellow, which is also the background of the Prancing Horse in Ferrari’s logo, can be seen gleaming and glistening on the outside. A multi-projection shows the story of Enzo Ferrari from a child who discovered racing in his childhood to becoming a racing driver and ultimately an engineer. His story was one of great success, one worth emulating and recreating. The Museum of Ferrari Engines is a further immersion in Ferrari’s spirit and innovation.

Modena, the Land of Motors, is not only home to Ferrari cars and his birth, but also where he used to eat – Ristorante Cavallino. Ristorante Cavallino, where Enzo Ferrari used to eat, was established by Enzo Ferrari in Maranello in 1950. Although transformed and revitalized, the restaurant still inspires Ferrari’s values, memories, aspirations, and successes. The restaurant was around long enough to be integral to Ferrari’s history, witnessing the successes and challenges. Within the rooms of this restaurant, Ferrari’s memory is preserved, as he, along with other engineers, stopped for lunch with friends, partners, and dignitaries. The restaurant evokes nostalgia but is also alive with dreams that inspired Enzo Ferrari. This is one more place where the presence of Enzo can be felt, where enthusiasts and tourists from all over the world visit. The passion and energy of Enzo Ferrari are worth witnessing in the Ristorante Cavallino.

Final Words

Enzo Ferrari left such a great mark, one worth recreating in movies, including the new one, which will star Adam Driver. The movie will be shot in Modena, rightfully so, where it all started. The city of Modena preserves the legacy of Enzo Ferrari, which includes the Enzo Ferrari Museum, the Museum of Ferrari Engines, and the Ristorante Cavallino, all worth visiting by Ferrari enthusiasts. The story of the movie will be centered around Enzo’s early life and moments of great challenge. It will be inspiring and worth seeing.

Ferrari died in 1988 aged 90 and is the founder of the Scuderia Ferrari team and Ferrari (an Italian luxury sports car manufacturing company). De Niro told the newspaper that it was a great honor to tell the life of an astonishing man who revolutionized the motor sport industry and that the film will be produced soon—most likely in Italy. He added that the biopic is one of his most important projects that he would prioritize it over all his other projects.

The biopic will be conjointly produced by TriBeCa Film (De Niro’s Production Company) and Triworld’s Gianni Bozzacchi, and is expected to cover Ferrari’s life from 1945 to the 1980s. The script will be written by Nixon’s genius screenwriters, Christopher Wilkinson and Rivele J Stephen. One of the good directors who have shown interest in directing the biopic is Clint Eastwood. Clint is reported to have agreed to direct the movie if he likes the Nixon’s script.

Bozzacchi stated that the “epic” film’s title will simply be “Ferrari” and would have a considerably big budget. This is not the first time that De Niro will be featuring in Ferrari story film: he is reported to have been attached to play the marquee founder in a 1990s Michael Mann’s production (the original version of the Ferrari story) that unfortunately never made it to the cinemas.

The language that the biopic will be shot in is, however, still not clear as the involved stakeholders have not stated whether the film will be based on Ferrari’s native language (Italian), in English, or a mixture of both. Nonetheless, De Niro seems to be comfortable with both languages. He is reported to have spent around four months mastering the Sicilian dialect for the Godfather: Part II and fluently spoke Italian in the 2011 romantic comedy film, The Ages of Love.
