|Bale and Damon were starters at the Indy 500 this past weekend – neither Ford or Ferrari race in IndyCar|
Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale are set to star in Ford v. Ferrari and we have our first look at the upcoming film.
Ford v. Ferrari is based on the true story of "the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966."
The film is being directed by Logan's James Mangold, and is written by Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth, and Jason Keller.
Joining Damon and Bale will be Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, and Ray McKinnon
