Los Angeles, California (November 14, 2012) Long time Formula 1™ enthusiast and Golden Globe nominated actor, Michael Fassbender, has signed on to narrate Exclusive Media’s Spitfire Pictures’ new documentary film “1”, it was announced today by the film’s producer and Exclusive Media co-chairman Nigel Sinclair and fellow producer Michael Shevloff together with director Paul Crowder.
‘1’ is a visually spectacular ‘Action Documentary’. Set in the golden era of Grand Prix Racing it tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives during Formula 1’s™ deadliest period for the chance of glory, and the men who stood up and changed the sport forever.
Racing a Formula 1™ car was never for the faint of heart. But in the late 1960’s the cars doubled the size of their engines and sprouted wings making them incredibly quick and even more dangerous. With a new worldwide television audience and money pouring in from sponsorship came superstar drivers, thrown like gladiators in to the ring.
