Exciting news. During the recent promotion for “Dead Man Down”, Noomi has confirmed both “Animal Rescue” – which is already shooting – as well as “Child 44” as her upcoming projects. In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Rapace has reviewed her five favorite films of all times, including director Michaël R. Roskam’s thriller “Bullhead”, the Belgian thriller starring Matthias Schoenaerts, that was nominated as Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards last year.

I love the movie Bullhead. I’m working with the director now. He’s kind of putting the light into a business, a very dirty business – it’s not the cool gangsters, it’s not the kind of sexy gangster world; it’s the gritty, very uncharming world of criminals working in the meat industry in Belgium. And the whole backstory to this lead guy is so incredible. I was in tears a couple of times when I saw it. And now I’m gonna work with Matthias [Schoenaerts] and with Michaël R. Roskam, who directed it.

In an interview with Esquire, she has mentioned “Animal Rescue” as well, alongside the next project, “Child 44”:

Q: You’re in New York shooting Animal Rescue, which is your second movie with Tom Hardy? A: No, actually this is the first, and then we do Child 44 after that. Q: Did you know him before you signed on to two movies with him? A: Yeah, I knew him, he’s a friend of mine. We’ve been trying to find something to do because I think he’s such an amazing actor and I adore him as a person. Then we both read the script, and it’s amazing. I love it. It’s based on a short novel by Dennis Lehane, who wrote Mystic River. It’s a light comedy and my character is a very cute girl-next-door. No, actually it’s a drama, but I was kind of laughing out loud when I was reading the script a couple of times, because I found it funny. It’s dark, of course.

Both projects sound very interesting with talented people behind, so there’s two more films to look forward to.

Shortly before Christmas, Fox Searchlight offered Noomi Rapace the female lead opposite Tom Hardy in Michael Roskam’s drama “Animal Rescue” (read article here) and Variety has learned that the “Prometheus” star has accepted the role and closed her deal. Chernin Entertainment and Mike Larocca are producing the pic, which author Dennis Lehane adapted from his own short story that first appeared in “Boston Noir.” Production is skedded to begin this spring in New York, where Fox Searchlight is relocating the story rather than film in Massachusetts, where Lehane adaptations “Mystic River,” “Shutter Island” and “Gone Baby Gone” all took place. Hardy stars as a man looking to reform his criminal ways who gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman with a scar across her entire neck who crosses paths with the protag when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home. Rapace had been looking for a chance to work with Hardy, as the duo were also considering working together on Scott Free’s long-gestating project “Child 44.”

According to Variety, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are in talks to star in Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue,” based on the short story by Dennis Lehane. Variety first reported that Hardy was circling the project when it was announced that Michael R. Roskam would direct. Lehane will also pen the script, which follows a lonely Boston bartender who rescues a puppy from a garbage can and becomes the target of the dog’s abusive and mentally unstable former owner, while simultaneously getting caught in the middle of a criminal conspiracy playing out in his mob-controlled bar. Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and Jenno Topping are producing with Mike Larocca. Production is tentatively skedded to start early next year. The CAA-repped Hardy had just wrapped production on Warner Bros.’ “Fury Road” and had been weighing several projects including “Everest” and Summit’s “Child 44,” which Rapace had also been circling.
