Go Crypto: Antonio Banderas and Alec Baldwin Star as Lamborghini and Ferrari in Blockchain Financed Film

Sat Jun 23, 2018 9:27 pm

Lamborghini has a big green light. The new biopic about legendary sports car founder Ferruccio Lamborghini is set to star Antonio Banderas in the lead role. He’ll face off against rival Enzo Ferrari, played by Alec Baldwin.

The film is being co-financed and co-produced by TaTaTu, a blockchain-based platform. It’s set to become one of the first big movie productions to use blockchain technology.

The film is primarily being shot in Italy as it tells the story of the legendary businessman Ferruccio Lamborghini. The biopic begins with his days as the manufacturer of Lamborghini Tractors to creating military vehicles during World War II, and then moving on to designing and building Lamborghini sports cars.

The film is helmed by Bobby Moresco who last swept audiences with a wave of cars in the movie Crash (2004) for which he won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay, shared with director Paul Haggis. The pair also collaborated on Million Dollar Baby, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Hilary Swank.

Blockchain company TaTaTu is a video-on-demand platform that integrates social media activity with entertainment viewing. The TaTaTu token (TTU) will be used to reward viewers for watching movies, television episodes, music videos, sports and content from celebrities, YouTubers and other online influencers, and will allow advertisers to pay for advertising on the platform. Members of the production staff have also received TTU tokens as compensation.

The company was founded by movie producer Andrea Iervolino (The Merchant of Venice, In Dubious Battle), named Best Producer at the 71st Annual Venice Film Festival, together with Al Pacino and Barry Levinson.

Lamborghini and its use of blockchain and cryptocurrency are defining the emerging technology as a viable business model for attracting top Hollywood talent who are open to new ways of film funding, film production and, ultimately, film distribution.
