Favreau, Reynolds Prepare For “Battle”

Ryan Reynolds is attached to star and Jon Favreau to direct “Battle For Bonneville” which New Regency is set to pick up reports Deadline.

“The Bourne Legacy” co-scribe Dan Gilroy is penning the true story tale of Art and Walt Arfons, half-brothers and race track rivals who put aside their differences and team up to set the world land speed record. With a jet-powered race car on the Utah Salt Flats, they broke the record – three times.

Favreau is currently prepping the “Jersey Boys” film adaptation and the hope is this will follow immediately after. Reynolds, Favreau, Mark Ciardi, Gordon Gray, Jonathan Komack Martin and Jennifer Fox will produce.
