Villeneuve Pironi

Soundology's Nainita Desai scores second Noah Media doc

Marking 40 years since Canadian racing driver Gilles Villeneuve tragically lost his life in a devastating crash at the Belgian Grand Prix at Zolder, ‘Villeneuve Pironi’, comes to Sky One.

Scored by Nainita Desai of composer outfit Soundology (14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible, Persona), the film tells the astonishing story of two supremely gifted Ferrari F1® drivers: Gilles Villeneuve & Didier Pironi, forever torn apart by a historic and hugely controversial moment in time. It is being produced by Noah Media Group and Sky Studios for Sky and NBCUniversal and is set for release later this year.

The film is directed by Torquil Jones (14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible, Bobby Robson: More Than a Manager), and produced by John McKenna (14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible, Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans) as well as former Formula 1® driver Mark Webber.
