Best known for playing Baron Zemo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Daniel Brühl is now set to direct the next motorsports thriller 2 Win. Directed by Italian filmmaker Stefano Mordini in what will be his first feature film in English, 2 wins is inspired by real events that took place during the 1983 World Rally Championships during the fierce rivalry between the automotive giants of Germany (Audi) and Italy (Lancia). The story revolves around German rider Roland Gumpert, who competes with Italian rider Cesare Fiorio to win the prestigious tournament.
Now it’s confirmed (via Variety) that Daniel Brühl was asked to play the role of Gumpert in 2 wins, with Ricardo Scamarcio (John Wick: Chapter 2) will play the role of Fiorio and German actor Volker Bruch (The girl in the spider’s web) also joining the cast. The screenplay was written by Filippo Bologna with Mordini and Scamarcio. The film is set to begin production later this month in Europe, with filming set to take place on location in Italy and Greece, including actual locations where the events took place.
Brühl has been busy in recent years after resuming his Captain America: Civil War role of Helmut Zemo in the 2021 Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and directing the TNT period drama the alienist for two seasons. The Spanish-German actor is no stranger to starring in a motorsport film, having played iconic Formula 1 driver Niki Lauda in Ron Howard’s 2013 film Dash, where he starred alongside fellow MCU actor Chris Hemsworth. The film should see Brühl find himself in familiar territory, and audiences can expect him to further flesh out his proven acting skills when 2 wins finally makes its debut.
