Brock­u­men­tary

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -

Eric Bana is be­ing tar­geted for a piv­otal role in a new doc­u­men­tary on Peter Brock. The doc­u­men­tary – Brock: King of the Moun­tain – cov­ers the tu­mul­tuous Po­lar­izer pe­riod in Brock’s life and cul­mi­nates with his against-the-odds win at Bathurst in 1987.

It has been put to­gether by a team led by Mel­bourne film maker Liam Fir­mager, who has man­aged to as­sem­ble almost all of the crit­i­cal crew from the 1980s, from Bev Brock and Al­lan Mof­fat to John Har­vey, Neil Cromp­ton, for­mer Wheels ed­i­tor Phil Scott and Brock’s pub­lic re­la­tions man, Tim ‘Plas­tic’ Pem­ber­ton. Each gives their mem­o­ries of the events, as well as their per­sonal in­sights on Brock and his life.

With the doc­u­men­tary now com­plete, Fir­mager is hop­ing he can con­vince Bana – de­spite his life­long love for Fords, a pas­sion re­flected in his own 2009 film Love the Beast – to pro­vide the voice-over for the movie.

But there is more, as Fir­mager is also work­ing on a fea­ture film on Brock and Bana is one of the ac­tors he would hope to see in the lead role.

The doc­u­men­tary should hit tele­vi­sion screens by the early months of next year, but if you want to get a taste then search for it on YouTube.
