We got a chance to sit down with Ford v Ferrari director James Mangold to see how he parsed the wide-ranging lives of all the characters in the movie into a study of just two men: Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, played by Matt Damon and Christian Bale.
“A lot of the challenge is what you don’t do as well as what you do,” Mangold said. “What you include, what you highlight with the camera, what you follow. It is such a rich universe. Just the world of Enzo (Ferrari) is fascinating. Just the world of Ford is fascinating. The world of Carroll Shelby and Shelby American and all the wonderful menagerie of characters there is so fascinating. But for me, it was following this line of this friendship between Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles. And that’s like the center. That’s like the post holding up the center of this amazing circus tent.”
Mangold is no stranger to strong characters, having directed the films Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma and the X-Men movies The Wolverine and Logan, among others. He now turns his considerable talent toward telling the tale of Shelby and Miles, and we are the beneficiaries. Watch the video above for more, and be sure to check out our review of Ford v Ferrari, along with our interview with stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon.
