Martin Scorsese announces ‘Silver Ghost’ movie on Rolls-Royce historyMay 22, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
Rolls Royce, ah the name has so much Royalty. A carrier of great technology and innovation, followed by a history so glorious, one can only imagine to have something like that. It is amazing how it has been so long and nobody came up with a thought of telling the story about one of the grandest history in automobile industry. Rolls Royce’s history doesn’t just have cars they are the company that made engines for the aeronautical industry and they also made tanks for the Second World War. It’s a diverse history.
But now a movie is being made. The movie titled Silver Ghost will be based on the lives of its Founders, Charles Royce and Henry Royce. Christian Bale will be taking up the leading role as Lord John Douglass-Scot Montagu, a British MP who took the responsibility to campaign on behalf of motor enthusiasts.
Sharman MacDonald, also Keira Knightley’s mother has written the script and the movie is expected to be completed by 2013. The only concern is if movie fails, because it will be the first of the things related to Rolls Royce that would fail.
