According to the Times Online
, Star Trek XI
's Eric Bana (Nero) is directing Love the Beast
, a movie that explores a twenty-five-year relationship between a man and his car. Bana himself is a car fanatic, and owns a 1974 Ford Falcon coupe bought for him by his father when he was fifteen. Love the Beast
will be released in 2009.
Just to clarify for the American audience, this is an Australian Falcon XB
, the same body style as used for Mad Max
's Interceptor, not the pedestrian U.S. Falcon (which was a nice car, but nothing like the Aussie; in 1974, our
Falcon had become the Ford Maverick).
