Noomi Rapace is revvin’ up for a new project…
The 37-year-old half-Spanish actress is in talks to star opposite Hugh Jackman star in Michael Mann’s Ferrari.
Jackman would play Enzo Ferrari, while Rapace would portray his estranged wife Linda. Their relationship, as fiery and combustible as the race cars that Ferrari designed, plays a big part in the script Mann wrote.
They have loosely been discussing this teaming for months, and now things are starting to move for a summer 2018 production start.
Ferrari is the drama Mann started in partnership with the late director Sydney Pollack almost 17 years ago. The film takes place in 1957, a year where passion, failure, success and death and life all collided in Ferrari’s battle for supremacy against rival Maserati. Christian Bale was going to play Ferrari two years ago, but developed health concerns when he began putting on weight.
Rapace will next appear in Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Alien: Covenant.
