BOYEGA AND DE NIRO TO STAR IN NETFLIX FILM THE FORMULA

Directed and produced by Gerard McMurray, ‘The Formula’ will star Robert De Niro and Star Wars actor John Boyega.

It’s lights out and away they go with Netflix revealing a new Formula 1-based crime drama starring Robert De Niro and Star Wars franchise actor John Boyega is to be made.

Written and directed by Burning Sands director Gerard McMurray, ‘The Formula’ centres around a Formula 1 prodigy, played by Boyega, who becomes involved with the mafia and is forced to become a getaway driver to save his family.

McMurray will also share producer credits through his new production company, Buppie Productions, with De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Berry Welsh. The project itself is part of Rosenthal and Welsh’s overall deal with Netflix.

A release date has not yet been set for the project.

It is the latest motorsport venture from Netflix, with Season 3 of the Drive to Survive documentary – which provides exclusive behind-the-scenes access from Formula 1 grands prix – set to be released in the coming weeks.

The streaming service will also house a new sitcom set in the world of NASCAR.

‘The Crew’, which focuses on the boss of a NASCAR team in need of modernisation, is set for release on February 15th.

Kevin James, best known for his role as Doug Heffernan in The King of Queens, will play the role of crew chief of the fictional Bobby Spencer Racing.

The release of the series is set to coincide with this year’s running of the Daytona 500.
