Aussie superstar Eric Bana will make his directorial debut with ”Love the Beast”.
The film stars Bana as his real life self, and covers his 25-year-long love affair with his own ‘Beast’, a 1974 Falcon Coupe, and is produced by Melbourne based Patikalar Productions.
In an unexpectedly emotional journey, Eric explores the importance of friends, hobbies, and what it means to live life to the fullest. Along the way Eric seeks counsel and guidance from household names such as Dr Phil and Jeremy Clarkson.
Shot over 2 years, “Beast” takes us, in glorious detail, from the inside of a race car, to the Tasmanian wilderness, to the streets of NY and London.
“I am terribly excited about this project.”, said Bana . “It has been both fun and incredibly exhausting at the same time and has enabled me to combine two of the things that I love; cars and filmmaking. It started out as a simple project, but events along the way conspired to turn it into something I could never have envisioned.”
Madman Entertainment has secured the rights to distribute this new Australian feature film.
