Although Gran Turismo is all set to hit the silver screen next month, the end of this anticipated blockbuster will not mean an end to the excitement for motor racing enthusiasts. Michael Mann’s Ferrari is soon going to rev its engines on the screen. While the information about this biopic is still relatively limited, what we know so far is already sparking anticipation.
VIDEO PICK OF THE DAY FROM FILMSWEEP
During the Mediterrane Film Festival, FilmSweep had an exclusive conversation with Daniel Pemberton, the music magician behind Ferrari. Pemberton, known for creating the score for movies such as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and The Trial of the Chicago 7, spoke to FilmSweep’s Chief Editor Steve Weintraub, sharing some insights into Ferrari’s backdrop and storyline. Evidently ecstatic about the project, Pemberton disclosed what more we can anticipate besides intense motor racing:
“What makes the film intriguing is its immersive exploration into the insanity that is motor racing. The origin and rationale of motor racing are bewildering. In that era, losing friends was a common occurrence. The film equally addresses grief and racing. It’s a sophisticated drama interlaced with some truly remarkable racing episodes.”

Ferrari Set to Star a Stellar Cast
Pemberton showered praises on the film’s cast, starring Adam Driver (Star Wars trilogy) and Penélope Cruz (Parallel Mothers) as Enzo and Laura Ferrari. About the lead pair, Pemberton commented, “Adam is splendid. I believe Penelope Cruz delivers an exceptional performance in it.” He further expressed his excitement about what engaged him as both an audience member and a composer, and what elements of the movie set his pulse racing. He affirmed that the racing sequences were the high points of the movie, stating, “The racing scenes are phenomenal. They’re incredibly visceral.” The composer also noted that Ferrari excels in portraying the “absolutely insane world of racing where drivers are essentially steering rockets without any seatbelts.”
“Visceral” indeed serves as an apt descriptor for the work of director Michael Mann, who has a reputation for crafting raw and indelible film experiences. Mann, the creative mind behind the contemporary classic thriller Heat and the architect of Tom Cruise’s villainous character in Collateral, has gathered a star-studded cast for Ferrari, which includes Shailene Woodley (Big Little Lies), Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy), Gabriel Leone (Dom), Jack O’Connell (Jungleland), and Sarah Gadon (True Detective).
While Ferrari is projected to release in 2023, the movie’s producers are still negotiating for widespread distribution. Regardless, an early screening at the Venice Film Festival, taking place this September in Italy, is expected. Stay tuned to FilmSweep for the debut of the trailer and further updates about Ferrari as they are announced.
