Fans of fast-moving red objects that aren’t Superman, rejoice. A movie about the life of Ferrari founder and motorsport grandee, Enzo Ferrari, is heading our way and Robert De Niro is aboard to play the Italian racer/engineer in a film entitled simply Ferrari.The Guardian, which picked up the news from Il Messaggero, has the film spanning 1945 to the 1980s, a period of Ferrari’s life that saw him emerge from a racing career to spearhead the Ferrari team’s successes in ensuing years. "It is an honour to tell the life of an extraordinary man who revolutionised the world of motor sport,” De Niro told the Italian broadsheet. "The film will go into production soon, mostly in Italy, and has absolute priority over all my other projects.”That’s bad news for another hoping to see Little Fockers 2 – both of you – but an indication of the kind »
Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.
Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.
Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.
