Martin Scorsese & Richard Attenborough in the driver’s seat for Rolls Royce film

The two icons will produce the docu-drama Silver Ghost, which chronicles the lives of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce.

Announcing the project to Variety, Scorsese says, “When I read the story of Silver Ghost, I was mesmerised. I immediately thought, ‘This is a picture that has to be made.’

“And when I was asked to come aboard as a producer alongside Richard Attenborough and Anthony Haas, I didn’t hesitate a moment.”

The film will be set in turn-of-the-century England and feature scandalous revelations about Rolls and Royce’s romances and family secrets.
