Hollywood's fascination with famous Italian brands is now being topped by Adam Driver set to play Enzo Ferrari in Michael Mann’s upcoming biopic Ferrari. The movie is being shot in Italy, and features Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, Patrick Dempsey and obviously Adam Driver. It’s set during the summer of 1957 when Ferrari entered the Mille Miglia Race covering 1,609 km of Italy. The movie is based on the book Ferrari – The Man and the Machine, by author Brock Yates.
The advertised film synopsis: Ferrari is set during the summer of 1957. Ex-racing car driver, Ferrari, is in a crisis.

He decides to counter his losses by rolling the dice on one race – 1,000 miles across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.
