Olivia Wilde has signed up for the lead female role in Ron Howard's upcoming Formula One film Rush.
The House and Change-Up star will play supermodel Suzy Miller in the movie about the rivalry between 1970s racers Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), Deadline reports.
Miller was married to Hunt in 1974 but decided to file for divorce after she became romantically involved with Elizabeth Taylor's ex-husband Richard Burton. Hunt called on Burton to give him $1 million (£647,398) in a divorce settlement so the latter could marry Miller.
Howard is reportedly looking for a major Hollywood star to play Burton in the film, despite the actor making only a brief appearance.
