The Telegraph has a fantastic new interview: Noomi Rapace arrives for our interview looking gloriously mad, like the love-child of Lady Gaga and Alienâs Ellen Ripley. She is a vision in a Balmain boiler-suit, open to the waist to reveal a chest of gold jewellery and a pin-stripe bra. On her feet are a pair of six-inch Sergio Rossi boots, and on her peroxide blonde head a pair of sparkling sunglasses that appear to have been mined from the moon. âA lot of people think Iâm quite dark and angry and hardcore and really quite kind of super serious,â she tells me, by way of explanation, âand then they meet me and theyâre like, âOh my God, youâre so funny and you laugh and youâre smiling so much!â and Iâm like, âYeah, why wouldnât I?ââ Because you like to play women who are quite dark and angry and hardcore and super serious, I say, thinking of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (she was the lead in the original, Swedish version), and Elizabeth Shaw, the ripped scientist in Ridley Scottâs Prometheus who gives herself a caesarian after realising she is pregnant with an alien. Because most of the women you play are quite, you know, scarred? âYes!â the 34-year-old Swede giggles wildly. The complete interview can be read here.
According to Screen Daily, Noomi Rapace will play the desperate mother of a kidnapped child in The Price, which worldwide rights holder Cargo Entertainment is selling at AFM. Buyers have responded strongly to the package about a woman who learns she can only recover her kidnapped son if she provides a blonde girl of the same age in exchange. Writer-director Siofra Campbell and the producers are ramping up for a February Berlin shoot. Peggy Cafferty and Patrick Campbell serve as producers alongside Germanyâs Sven Woldt.
According to Hollywood Reporter, John Malkovich and Toni Collette are joining Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom in the thriller Unlocked. Michael Apted is directing the female Bourne-style thriller from a screenplay by Peter OâBrien. The story centers on a CIA interrogator (Rapace), who unwittingly provides information to terrorists and then must race against the clock to stop a biological warfare attack on London. Principal photography will commence on November 3. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing with Georgina Townsley and Erik Howsam. Claudia Blumhuber is also producing as well as financing through Silver Reel. Bloom first introduced the film to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival.
VVV Magazine has put Noomi on its Conviction issue cover and features a great new interview inside. Since she has fallen in love with film in her early teens, Noomi Rapace has devoted her life to acting. After achieving international fame as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Rapace has quickly become a familiar face to the American film industry. With her appearances in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Prometheus, the rising star has proven her talent and will soon be featured in a myriad of upcoming big screen movies. Embracing Hollywood, Noomi graced the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue Cover alongside Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Franco, Ryan Reynolds, and Jennifer Lawrence. The ever-evolving actress shares her perspectives on her upcoming movies, the world of fashion, and the cinematic industry. You can read their interview with Noomi on their official site. Additionally, more from pictures from 10 Magazine (Autumn issue) have been added as well.
Better late than never, I’ve added a picture of Noomi attending the Louis Vitton Opening in Boulogne-Billancourt on October 20. Additionally, more pictures from the “The Drop” premiere at the London Film Festival, earlier this month, have been added as well.
Three clips from the London Film Festival have been added to the archive. First, there’s a compilation of red carpet interviews with Noomi. In her interview, Noomi confirms that “Unlocked” will be her next project with Michael Doughlas and Orlando Bloom co-starring and that it will start shooting in London in about two weeks. Then, the complete Q&A with Noomi and Michael Roskam following the film’s premiere. The third video is a compilation of press interviews for “The Drop”, in which Noomi also dishes on the anticipated “Prometheus” sequel.
