Eric Bana has starred in and makes his directorial debut on Whyte House Productions feature-length doco “Love the Beast” which explores the importance of his 25-year-long love affair with his first car – a 1974 Ford Falcon Coupe.
Obsessed with cars and racing since he was a child, Bana’s film takes us on a journey that spans a lifetime and culminates in the Beast’s untimely death in one of the world’s most dangerous races, the Targa Tasmania.
Talk show host Jay Leno, “Top Gear” presenter Jeremy Clarkson and world renowned psychologist Dr, Phil McGraw also appear and examine the significance of the bond that is formed around a common passion.
Filming took place in Los Angeles, Melbourne and London. The project will premiere in select international markets in 2009. The trailer can be found at the official site.
