Variety writes, “Based on a true story, the film follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new automobile with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship.”
Variety also reported that Mr. Mangold is interested in Matt Damon for the role of Carroll Shelby and Christian Bale for the role of Ken Miles, no word yet who is underconsideration for Ford’s racing Team captain Charles Agaipou
