“Ford vs Holden” documentary coming soon
Brisbane, Australia, January 18, 2022: Screen Queensland (Queensland’s, Australia, governing body for film, television, and games) has announced the production of a High-Octane documentary: A feature documentary which captures Australia’s passion for cars and the longstanding rivalry between the iconic brands Ford and Holden. The film will be developed in Brisbane, Australia, by local production company WildBear Entertainment for studio giant Universal Pictures Content Group.
Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palazczuk, announced this production saying that Brisbane will once again show why it is a world-class environment to produce screen projects of all kinds.
The Premier said: “The talented Documentary Producers from WildBear Entertainment have been hard at work in their studio, blending fresh interviews with archive footage to bring this story of Ford vs Holden to cinemas in mid-April, 2022.”
The working title, Ford vs Holden, is a fun tongue-in-cheek reference to Ford v Ferrari (2019). Ford v Ferrari is highly-acclaimed and received raving reviews – 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes – we are hoping for the same result for Ford vs Holden!
The documentary will dive into the long rivalry seen between Ford and Holden Down Under. In fact, Top Gear Australia did a story on this rivalry during its first season. Holden is a Melbourne-based, Australia, subsidiary of US General Motors: that previously manufactured vehicles in Australia. And we all know what Ford is.
The Premier said: “The rivalry between the Ford and Holden brands is one familiar to Australians across all walks of life, so it is exciting to see Queensland play a key role in documenting it for a global audience.”
The documentary will be narrated by Actor and petrolhead Shane Jacobson (who is best known for Dunny Man (2006)). And will be produced by WildBear’s Principal Veronica Fury (who recently produced Brock: Over the Top (2020) which was nominated for a 2020 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts award).
Fury said: “Documentaries are an amazing way to reflect and deliver thought-provoking and captivating viewing experiences for audiences, and I am excited to bring this particular part out of history to the big screen.”
We will definitely be racing to cinemas in April!
