De Niro, Boyega appear in F1 movie – Motorsports

Hollywood legend Robert De Niro and Star Wars John Boyega will appear in a fictional crime film set in the F1 world.

Netflix’s work, called the Formula, is about an American F1 driver who gets caught up in the Mafia and must be an escape driver to save his family.

The formula will be the first F1-based production of modern Grand Prix racing since Al Pacino’s Bobby Deerfield film, which includes stock footage for the 1976 season.

Deniro is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and has won two Academy Awards. Boyega is best known for Finn’s portrayal in Disney’s Star Wars trilogy.

The formula is written, produced and directed by Gerald McMurray. His newly formed Buppie Productions states, “We are developing and producing interesting stories featuring black characters for mainstream movie and television viewers.”

McMurray wrote on Instagram: “It’s amazing to see this idea finally come true in my mind and I’m writing, directing and producing.

“My new production company, Buppie Productions, has partnered with Tribeca Films and Netflix to deliver a dope original film called The Formula starring my favorite actors John Boyega and Robert De Niro.

“This is the story of a young man from Detroit who has become an international racing star in the F1 world under the guidance of an old mob mentor.”
