► Based on the true story
► Bale and Damon star
► We're holding our breath for now
Motorsport is back on the silver screen again, and this time Hollywood is retelling the story of Ford’s first entry in 24 Hours of Le Mans. The new film, directed by James Mangold and starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale is released on 15th November, and charts the development and use of the first Ford GT.
Damon plays Carroll Shelby, while Bale plays the role of Ken Miles – the British driver key in developing the car.
Fox says the film is ‘based on [a] remarkable true story,’ so get ready for some inaccuracies and a large dose of artistic licence. Still, giving motorsport's best stories more publicity is only a good thing, right?
