The production of this film, whose budget would be around 140 million dollars, does not intend to do things by halves, since the seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton himself will provide advice behind the camera.
Note that among the producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, who notably produced “Days of Thunder”, a film about NASCAR released in 1990.
This feature film will initially be broadcast in dark rooms for a maximum of 60 days, is it announced in The Hollywood Reporter which specifies that it will then be offered on Apple TV +.
