According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are in negotiations for yet another collaboration – “Child 44″, a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan via the Scott Free banner. Daniel Espinosa is directing the thriller, which is set during the 1950s and follows a member of the Soviet police who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own governmentâ€™s suspicions. Hardy would play the Soviet officer, while Rapace would play his wife, who pretends to be a doting partner but is concealing many thoughts and feelings. The two will first work together on Fox Searchlightâ€™s drama Animal Rescue, which is due to shoot in March, before segueing to Child 44, which is eyeing a start in Budapest toward the end of May.
