There is a new big budget movie in works at 20th century fox about the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Its estimated at around 100 million $.Being directed by James Mangold.
It seems to be more of a mission movie than a race movie like rush. It deals with concept of invention and overcoming the insurmountable odds. It seems to be more like the movie "the right stuff". They basically have to design a machine from scratch which has to be faster than the fastest model by Ferrari. There is drama there which i think James Mangold can make without being overly melodramatic.
Given that no one in america cares about car/f1 racing what do you guys think is the potential financially for this movie ? or even awards wise.
I know that these types of movies have very good market in Europe if done right. I am not so sure about US.
If that's the case then what do you think are its chances of being remembered as masterpiece. No one thought wall street could be such a popular theme for a movie before wolf of wall street/the big short.

'no one in America'? Not even one person?

I'm not American as you know, but I would go to one if I had the headphones used by the dudes on the tarmac, and didn't have to rub shoulders with the riff raff. Giddyup



Is it the battle between Henry Ford and Enzo Ferrari to one up each other? Well Top Gear covered it in great detail, so it won't be too much of a surprise for me. That Hemsworth movie did quite well. So why not this one.

And I love F1. Its the pinnacle of racing. The only racing sport that matters to me along with WRC. Alas rally doesn't get to much coverage in US.

@Yoda dont you think this comment and your comment can be considered trolling ?



I think that would be a mighty loose definition of "trolling." You're saying something a bit hyperbolic (a recurring issue, I've noticed) and someone is pointing it out.

...its not to be take literally..no one means very few...come on guys



...and the response is obviously not saying you literally think that, but is merely pushing back a little on an observed pattern of hyperbole.

Not going to litigate this further.
