Eric Bana makes his directorial debut in March, in a very personalstory about his 25-year relationship with his first car, a Ford GTFalcon Coupe, dubbed \"The Beast\".

Love the Beast explores Bana\'s obsession with his car, and his relationship with the three friends who have helped to restore it. With The Beast in peak condition, Bana and his friends decide to enter the car in the gruelling Targa rally and inevitably, tragedy strikes.

Bana\'s story turns on its head and focusses on the dilemma the actor/director is faced with when he destroys the The Beast he holds so dear.

Bana draws on his star power to seek
advice from a few celebrity guidance counsellors and petrol heads, including Top Gear\'s Jeremy Clarkson, Dr
Phil, and fellow funnyman and car nut Jay Leno.

Love the Beast will be released on March 12 through Madman Entertainment.
