Ferrari: Adam Driver is the Great Constructor in the New Photo of the Biopic of Michael Mann
In the last few hours, a new official image has been released of Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari, the great constructor and founder of the Italian car manufacturer of the same name who will be at the center of the biopic directed by Michael Mann. Meanwhile, some news has emerged regarding the theatrical distribution of the awaited film.
The image in question, which you find at the bottom of this news, shows Ferrari already in old age supervising the preparations for the start of a race and we see him above a driver, probably from his new team.
According to a new article from Variety, Michael Mann’s Ferrari is one of several films to be bought by Sky Cinema in the UK and due for release in 2023 (according to another update, the film is expected to have a theatrical release followed by a move to Sky). As the title suggests, it is the story of Enzo Ferrari, the man behind the car company. Not much else is known about the film, except that Driver is the protagonist.
While it may come as a surprise to learn that the film will also be streamed in the UK, it’s not that shocking when you understand why Ferrari is currently stuck in distribution limbo (it’s expected to land on Showtime in the US).
In an article published late last year (via Deadline), it was revealed that there are still several questions surrounding how Ferrari will be distributed. The film is produced by STX Entertainment, a now-defunct studio. While filming on Mann’s new film was taking place, STX was going through some major changes as the studio was looking for a buyer and ultimately figuring out how to continue being a production company while ceasing to be a distributor. This means that many of the films produced by STX in the last two years have remained in a sort of distribution limbo, and now we are trying to figure out who will be able to distribute them.
For this reason, Ferrari could be purchased by a digital platform for direct streaming distribution. In the UK, despite the purchase of Sky Cinema, the film will still arrive in theaters.
