New project confirmed

  • Matt will start filming in the summer a new project with director James Mangold and Christian Bale - details at the Hollywood Reporter:

    Outlander star Caitriona Balfe and A Quiet Place breakout Noah Jupe are joining Christian Bale and Matt Damon in Fox’s untitled Ford vs. Ferrari movie.

    James Mangold, the filmmaker behind last year’s acclaimed Logan, is directing the feature, which will shoot this summer in Los Angeles. Chernin Entertainment is producing.

    The story revolves around car manufacturer Ford’s quest to beat Ferrari as the top maker of race cars. Damon is playing Carol Shelby, the eccentric engineer who designs from scratch the Ford GT 40, the car that just may win the 1966 Le Mans race, while Bale is portraying Ken Miles, the hotshot British racer who drives it.

    Balfe will play Bale’s wife, who is also an accomplished driver, and Jupe will play Bale’s son, worried about the dangers his dad faces on the track.
