Michael Mann, Rev’s Up his Engines

Variety is reporting that Michael Mann’s Forward Pass are teaming to produce a biopic on automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari, whose family redefined the concept of the high-powered Italian sports car and almost single-handedly created Formula One racing.

Project, inspired by Brock Yates’ 1991 book “”Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Race, the Machine,”” has spent a decade in development. As far back as 1993, Mann intended to direct the film with Robert De Niro in the lead. Mann now plans only to produce the film, however. David Rayfiel (“”Sabrina””) is penning the latest draft. Ferrari’s ambition to build and race the world’s finest cars is an epic tale shaped by the forces of two world wars, the rise of fascism, family tragedies and a single-minded determination that pushed him to work seven days a week but left little room for personal relationships. Project also spent some time under development at Italian shingle Cecchi Gori. Spyglass principals Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, Mirage’s Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella, Mann and Gianni Nunnari will produce the film, with Cecchi Gori serving as executive producer.

Rock Star – DVD Review

Have you ever worshipped a band? Members of the KISS Army might know what I’m talking about, but few others will. Because Chris Coles (Mark Wahlberg) has, and “”Rock Star”” tells his extraordinary story.

Pittsburgh-based Steel Dragons tribute band Blood Pollution has an ace up their sleeve. Front man Coles, a mild-mannered copy machine technician, possess extraordinary pipes and an uncanny ability to replicate the vocal stylings of Dragons singer Bobby Beers (Jason Flemyng). But Coles’ slavish devotion to Dragons contributes to his perfectionism, and his strict stage demands push his bandmates too far. Fed up, they unanimously vote to replace him with a rival band’s lead singer, sending Chris back to his dead-end day job. Thankfully, Chris isn’t out of the music business long. Professional groupies Nina and Samantha play a video tape of Blood Pollution’s last show for the members of Steel Dragon themselves, and they invite Chris to L.A. to audition to replace Beers, who has fallen out of favor with the band. Chris passes the initial test, but his trial by fire has just begun. Before long, the rigors of the job he thought he wanted take its toll on the admittedly-superficial life he led, and Chris realizes that the hours he wasted fantasizing about being someone else never gave him any time to establish his own personality. Can “”Rock Star”” actually be asking us to feel bad for the heavy metal hero who fills his days with enough pills, booze and groupies to gag Ozzy in his tracks? Initially, yes, but midway through, under the guiding hand of knowledgeable director Stephen Herek (who helmed similar fare in “”Mr. Holland’s Opus””), “”Rock Star”” begins to peel away the cliched elements of the touring saga and reach for genuine emotions. Herek knows exactly how this story ends, but he takes his time getting there. Instead of chopping up his scenes into unrecognizable pulp, Herek allows them build to refreshingly satisfactory climaxes. There’s also a clever sense of cyclical irony established as the film progresses that is unexpected but appreciated. When necessary, the director even reduces the film’s ballsy pop metal soundtrack to a whisper, allowing crucial bits of dialogue between the leads to be heard and savored. The secret, though, is Wahlberg, who continues to draw on his versatility and range, shedding the albatross of his hip-hop background and establishing himself as a genuine leading man. His raw enthusiasm and fanatical devotion make him the ultimate tour guide to this enthusiastic romp through a world that is becoming all too familiar to us after films like “”Almost Famous”” and “”This Is Spinal Tap”” but still has enough material to pack a concert hall to the rafters.GRADE: B+THE EXTRASAs engaging as Herek
