Will there be an Aerosmith ballad on the soundtrack?

Tom Cruise is re-teaming with his Oblivion director, Joseph Kosinsky, to address something very mod and awesome: autoracing in the 1960′s. Namely, the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari. Cruise will play Ford patron saint Carroll Shelby, which I’m giggling about just thinking about him showing someone a big-block engine, then grabbing them by the collar and yelling, “I am NOT fucking around.”

And now it appears that Brad Pitt may be his co-star, since he already has 1960′s auto racer hair. It’s not known who Brad Pitt will play in the film, so I would like to plant the seed that he reprise his role of Louis de Pointe du Lac, his character from the Cruise/Pitt film Interview with the Vampire.

Cruise’s Carroll Shelby would recognize him, and say, “Louis, my dear friend,” as he transformed into Lestat, taking Pointe du Lac’s hand and kissing it. They would then race cars in an awesome scene reminiscent of Days of Thunder, then they would dangle from wires like in Mission: Impossible.

Director Michael Mann is no stranger to exciting true life stories – he did Public Enemies, about the career of and hunt for bank robber John Dillinger, The Insider, about the fight against Big Tobacco, and The Last of the Mohicans, about the last of the Mohicans. Now he’s attached to another hopefully-exciting true story called Go Like Hell:

“Based on the book by A.J. Baime, story follows Henry Ford II — with the help of young automotive whiz Lee Iacocca and racing maven Carroll Shelby — as they set about reinventing the Ford Motor Co. by entering the high-stakes world of European car racing. In a handful of years they would develop the Ford GT40 (one of the most celebrated cars in automotive history) and become the first Americans to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. “

The idea of Michael Mann directing Le Mans racing action is enough to make me proverbially salivate. Actually, I might be literally salivating too. No information on casting, except for the rumor that Brad Pitt has been considered as the lead (Henry Ford II?). Hopefully, this will get made – Mann is just the person to handle this type of story.
