Hollywood legend Robert De Niro will play the titular role of the famous Italian motorsport entrepreneur, Eno Ferrari, in a biopic.

De Niro, 71, will also produce Ferrari, which is expected to begin production later this year in the late engineer's home country, reported Aceshowbiz.

Ferrari is scripted by Nixon scribes Stephen J Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson.

The biopic will reportedly cover a period from 1945 to the 1980s. Clint Eastwood is apparently interested in directing the film.

It is unclear if the movie will be filmed in Italian or English.
