Brad Pitt is said to be "developing" a film based on Edwin Black's book, IBM And The Holocaust.
The Hollywood superstar is set to produce through his Plan B production company, and possibly star, in the drama, reported Vulture.
Marcus Hinchey has written the script, and a director has not been named.
Edwin's book, published in 2001 and a New York Times best-seller, examines IBM's then-chief executive Thomas Watson, claiming that he formed a "strategic alliance" with Nazi Germany, and used punch cards to help the Germans quickly identify the Jews.
Brad, who attended a special screening of his new crime thriller Killing Them Softly in London, has been busy filming Ridley Scott's The Counsellor, which also stars Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz and real-life couple Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.
The actor, who has six children with fiancee Angelina Jolie, said he is not too bothered about making films his children can watch now.
"I'm actually more interested in the films that they're going to enjoy when they're adults," he said.
