Lamborghini And Ferrari Founders To Be Played By A Spanish Guy And Donald Trump

Hollywood

The old rivalry is coming to the big screen.

According to a new report from Variety, Antonio Banderas and Alec Baldwin have just signed on to play Ferruccio Lamborghini and Enzo Ferrari in an upcoming biopic. As we already know, this isn’t the only Enzo Ferrari feature film in the works. In fact, there are two others currently in development, one starring Hugh Jackman, the second with Robert De Niro. But this latest project will, obviously, focus on the rivalry between the two Italian businessmen.

The plot is based on the book Ferruccio Lamborghini: The Official Story, written by his son Tonino Lamborghini. The movie is set to be filmed in Italy, and has the working title of "Lamborghini – The Legend." Directed by Michael Radford (The Postman) with a script from Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), the story will follow Lamborghini’s rise as a manufacturer of tractors and military vehicles and, eventually, the creator Automobili Lamborghini, which he founded in 1963. Lamborghini, before he started his own supercar company, owned several Ferraris, but was later frustrated with their poor reliability, specifically the clutch.

As the story goes, he suggested some design improvements to Ferrari, only to be turned away. Insulted, Lamborghini swore he could do better, and the rest is history. No release date has been set, but for now let’s just hope production gets underway, unlike the delays that plagued those other Ferrari movies.
