Production company owned by Justin Lin working on a movie about Michèle Mouton

Michèle Mouton, the world-renowned rally driver and World Rally Vice champion, has sold the rights to her life story to Perfect Storm Entertainment. This decision was made after the success of Drum Studio’s documentary The Queen of Speed, which received the International Emmy for Best Sports Documentary in 2022.

Perfect Storm Entertainment, led by Justin Lin, will produce a biopic on Mouton’s remarkable journey to becoming one of the top rally drivers in a male-dominated industry during the 1970s and ’80s. The biopic will depict Mouton’s career highlights, including her wins in Monte Carlo and Pikes Peak in Colorado. She defied the odds during the dangerous Group B era of rallying and made history by winning four FIA World Rally Championship races.

The producers of this project include Justin Lin, Andrew Schneider, Sal Gatdula from Perfect Storm, as well as Andy Holland and Jessica Sinclair from Drum Studios. Mouton and her daughter, Jessie Johnsson-Lüthy, will also serve as executive producers.

Perfect Storm Entertainment is known for its diverse projects and is currently working on other films such as The Last Days of John Allen Chau and Two For The Money for Apple. They are also producing TV series like Seven Wonders for Amazon Prime and The Islands for Peacock. With a growing slate of projects, Perfect Storm continues to make its mark in the entertainment industry.
