The movie will cover the life of Ferrari from 1940s to 1980s, while Clint Eastwood has shown his interest in directing the film. "For me it is an honor and a joy to tell the life of an extraordinary man who revolutionized the automotive world and across historical periods and different social, from fascism to democracy, from war to economic well-being," Robert De Niro said.

"It will have a high budget and will cover a wide span – from 1945 to the eighties in a twisted game of eras and episodes”, said Gianni Bozzacchi, producer of the movie and owner of Triworld Cinema. "There will be a hagiographic account: describe the character with light and shadows, successes and sorrows as the death of the beloved son Dino, who died in 1956 at just 24 years due to a serious illness”.
