Christian Bale and Noomi Rapace will reportedly star in Paramount’s film on the Italian auto mogul Enzo Ferrari. Paramount Pictures announced that it will release the biopic, starring Christian Bale in the title role of the Italian auto magnate.

If a deal is made, Rapace, 35, would play Ferrari’s wife, Laura Dominica. Michael Mann will helm the project, which adapts the 1991 book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine, written by Brock Yates. The book recounted Ferrari’s ascent, working for Alfa Romeo, first as a racer and then as a developer, establishing his own company in 1947, racing victories in the ‘50s and ‘60s, and letting Fiat slowly take control of the company.

The film “takes place in one pivotal year, 1957. It is the personal story of a passionate man and his sprawling world, at times hilarious and at the next moment devastating, as he faces a brutal challenge to his survival.”

The book also focusses on his personal life -- showing Ferrari’s tyrannical and manipulative nature, how he pushed drivers to the breaking point (and even death), his hatred of his life-long marriage and his many affairs.
