Paramount, Rapace Warm To Mann’s Ferrari Film

Paramount Pictures has signed on to distribute in most world territories the upcoming project “Enzo Ferrari,” the Michael Mann-directed biopic about a pivotal year in the life of the Italian auto magnate – specifically 1957.

Christian Bale takes on the role in the film which will shoot next Summer in Italy, and Noomi Rapace reportedly is in talks to play Ferrari’s lifelong wife, Laura Dominica.

The $80 million project will be based on the 1991 Brock Yates biography which explored how Ferrari founded his own company and its success, but at the same time his tyrannical nature ended up pushing drivers past their limits – sometimes to death. He also had numerous affairs.
