Fall to your knees and pray that it goes into turnaround, so a real studio can pick it up. Fox has butchered everything they've touched for the last several years. If it hits theaters with a Fox logo, I predict Tom Cruise as Shelby, Jim Carrey as Enzo Ferrari and Miss Boobs-of-the-Week as the pointless love interest.

The cars will all be relegated to the CGI department and use Chrysler starter sounds because they sound so kewwwwwllll. Oh, and since GM will pick up the car sponsorship (on bailout money), the Corvettes will win this time.

Well, enjoy the book instead. It's a page turner even though you know how it ends.

It's been a long time since I've posted on the Forum, been disgustingly busy. But to respond to KGS365, there's some awesome movie news regarding Go Like Hell, with big names like Josh Brolin being throw around. See this site and scroll down: http://theplaylist.blogspot.com/

Who doesn't want to see the Ford/Ferrari battle of the 1960s played out on the big screen in a seriously funded production?!!! Now that's a party.

That's cool A.J.! Hopefully they'll put it on the fast track and make the movie sooner than later.

Great news! Hopefully this will happen soon. I was going to suggest the 50th anniversary but that would be too long.

I'm glad the option isn't just sitting on someone's desk!!! By the way, now we know who the producer is!!! (At least in this early stage, it often changes.)

Congrats!

I'm also adding a direct link to the article - the front page one will fall off in the not too distant future:

AJ, I enjoyed watching the interview with Jay, and was excited to hear about the movie rights being picked up!
We can only hope they do it justice and don't CGI the production up too much. From the pod cast of Adam Carolla the producer sounded pretty excited about the project.
Looks like Daniel Day Lewis would make a great Ken Miles.

Exclamation

Who does Brad Pitt want to play? Enzo?!?!? I have heard he is on track to be Frank Bullitt in a remake of Bullitt.

Geez, there are NO new ideas in Hollywood.

And after your story gets a "treatment", is rewritten twice, changed after the screenwriter quits and the "rescue writer" is brought in during filming, you will be the proud author of "Cannonball Run V"!!!! "Directed by Alan Smithee"!!!

You remember critical point during the night at LeMans 1966 when Donna Mae Mimms (Pam Anderson) cut off Fangio (Antonio Banderas) in the GT40 that was built the night before by the volunteers from prison and Fangio had to crash rather than run over the crippled orphan boy who had given Fangio his treasured good luck amulet during the blessing by the Pope.......................Yeah, that's the ticket!!!!!!!!

Well done!! Yes, it's a tricky world out there in Hollywood. When you're talking about spending millions, maybe hundreds of millions, on a project you intend to then make money on, you get a lot of people standing around yelling about what should and shouldn't be. But in the end, the story of Ford/Ferrari is right there, so cinematic. The only thing I can see them doing is putting together a composite character or two in order to bend the story into something that makes sense, that could climax at Le Mans 1966. Hopefully the movie gets made (if only for the paycheck!)

When you think of it it would be cool to premier the movie on the 50th anniversary but 2016 is so far away. But that might just be how long it would take to make it anyway.

Sure hope Carroll gets to see it.
