Michael Mann’s Ferrari movie has secured UK distribution, with Sky confirming that it’ll be releasing the movie in the UK.

Well, here’s a bit of news. For a good decade or two, a passion project of writer/director Michael Mann has been his Ferrari film. At one stage, he was involved in a version of what became Le Mans 66 (Ford Vs Ferrari in the US). But last year came the news that his own take on the story had finally gone before the cameras. It was just a case of how we’d be able to watch it.

Now, Sky Cinema has opened up its wallet, and announced it’s purchased the UK rights to the movie.

It doesn’t have a firm release date as of yet, short of confirming that it’s a 2023 release. Assuming it follows the usual Sky Cinema model, it’ll get a brief big screen release before heading to Sky’s own channel.

An official synopsis has been released as part of the announcement…

During the summer of 1957, ex-racecar driver, Enzo Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing ten years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for one son and the acknowledgement of another. Attempting to secure their survival he rolls the dice on one race – 1,000 miles across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.
