The Expendables 3

Story by Jack Foley

ANTONIO Banderas and Alec Baldwin are to star in Lamborghini biopic Lamborghini – The Legend.

The film is to be written and directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby) and will find Banderas playing the famed car designer Ferruccio Lamborghini and Baldwin as his rival, Enzo Ferrari.

The story is based on the biography Ferruccio Lamborghini: La Storia Ufficiale (The official story), written by his son Tonino Lamborghini.

It will follow the life of the iconic entrepreneur, from the manufacturing of tractors at the start of his career, to creating military vehicles during World War II.

Having succeeded in those areas, he then went on to design and build the Lamborghini cars that ultimately defined his profound legacy.

Principal photography is due to take place in Italy as well as other locations around the world that played a role in shaping the legend of Lamborghini.

The film, coming from Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi’s Ambi Media Group, will be co-financed and co-produced by TaTaTu, a newly-launched blockchain-based social entertainment platform.

TaTaTu was launched as a global and social entertainment platform through which users are rewarded for watching movies, television episodes and other forms of content, such as music videos and sports, and receive additional rewards from their friends’ viewing.

Bacardi is one of the company’s backers.
