Set to release this November 15th, 20th Century Fox have engaged some big name Hollywood celebrity actors to star in a brand new motorsport themed movie about the now legendary fight between Ford and Ferrari during the heyday of sportscar racing - the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale as Carrol Shelby and driver Ken Miles, the movie aims to dramatize the dramatic battle between the then underdog Ford team against the might of Ferrari at the greatest endurance race in the world.
Motorsport themed movies have been a bit hit and miss in recent years, but with the fairly recent strong positive reactions of the Hunt vs Lauda film still firmly ringing in the ears of Hollywood, perhaps this upcoming release could be another visual delight for fans of the history of our wonderful hobby...
