"Punisher" star Jon Bernthal is in negotiations to join the cast of untitled Ford vs Ferrari film.
The film, based on AJ Baime's book "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans" and to be directed by "Logan" helmer James Mangold, will feature Matt Damon and Christian Bale in the lead, reported Variety.
If finalised, Bernthal, 41, will play Lee Iacocca, who spearheaded development of the Ford Mustang.
The movie is about the feud between Ford and Ferrari as they both competed to win Le Mans World Championship in France in 1966.
Damon will portray automotive visionary Carroll Shelby while Bale is playing British driver Ken Miles.
The project will be produced by Chernin Entertainment.
