Batman star Christian Bale has signed up to play the legendary Enzo Ferrari in Michael Mann's biopic.

Deadline reports that the film will begin shooting next summer after a 15 year build by Mann, who had partnered Sydney Pollack on the project at one point.

The film is set in 1957 and based on Brock Yates' biography, 'Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine'.

Bale and Mann previously worked together on Public Enemies in 2009, which had a lukewarm critical reception.

Bale is currently filming The Jungle Book: Origins in which he plays Bagheera.
