For race car enthusiasts, this June marks a special milestone in American automobile history: It's the 45th anniversary of the first time an American car manufacturer won the classic 24 hours of Le Mans in France, the most prestigious auto race in the world. The manufacturer was Ford, and the car was the Ford GT40.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Michael Mann is in talks with 20th Century Fox to develop and potentially direct 'Go Like Hell,' the story behind the development of the car and the racing team that led Ford to beat Ferrari -- the perennial Le Mans champ -- sweeping the top three positions in 1966.
