Michèle Mouton Movie In Works From Justin Lin’s Production Banner


EXCLUSIVE: Justin Lin’s Perfect Storm Entertainment has acquired World Rally Vice champion Michèle Mouton’s life rights with plans to develop a biopic on her. Mouton’s life story caught the attention of Perfect Storm following the release of Drum Studio’s documentary The Queen of Speed, which won the International Emmy for Best Sports Documentary in 2022.

The project follows the the story of one woman’s rise to the top of the male-dominated world of rally in the 1970s and ’80s. From the streets of Monte Carlo to the deserts of Africa and the heights of Pikes Peak in Colorado, Mouton defied the odds as she broke her way into the motorsport world during the Group B era, a time when rallying was at its fastest and most dangerous. She made history by winning four FIA World Rally Championship races, cementing her reputation as one of the greatest motorsport drivers of all time. To this day, she remains the only woman to have ever won a World Rally Championship race.

Producers on the project include Perfect Storm’s Lin, Andrew Schneider and Sal Gatdula as well as Global Chief Production Officer Andy Holland and MD Jessica Sinclair for Drum Studios. Mouton and her daughter, Jessie Johnsson-Lüthy, will serve as executive producers on the project.

Perfect Storm is repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. Mouton is repped by Jessie Johnsson-Lüthy. Drum Studios is repped by Marc Kamler at Innovative Artists and legal with Peter McInerney at Sheridans.

Perfect Storm continues to build out a diversified slate as it is also producing the independent film The Last Days of John Allen Chau, with Lin directing, and Two For The Money for Apple starring Charlize Theron and Daniel Craig, which Lin will also direct. They are also producing Abacus with Participant Media based on the Steve James-directed documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, and the adaptation of the manga classic One Punch Man for Sony. 

On the TV side, Perfect Storm will produce the action-adventure series Seven Wonders starring Simu Liu for Amazon Prime; and The Islands for Peacock, written by Kaz and Ryan Firpo, with Steven Yeun attached. Additionally, it will produce Infinite Thread, and an untitled Joshua Troke project for Universal Television.
