A six minutes featurette on “Passion” has been released, including interviews with Brian DePalma, Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace and Karoline Herfurth, and featuring lots of scenes from the film throughout. Please be aware that the scenes might contain spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the original film, be warned :-) Many thanks to Lindsey for the heads-up.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gary Oldman is signing on to join Tom Hardy in Child 44, a 1950s Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer via the Scott Free banner. Lionsgate is distributing. Daniel Espinosa is directing the thriller, which follows a member of the Soviet military police (Hardy) who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own governmentâ€™s suspicions. In what should prove to be a meaty role, Oldman will play the head of police who is acting on those suspicions. Noomi Rapace is playing Hardyâ€™s chameleon-like wife, while Joel Kinnaman is playing an ambitious and murderous co-worker. Worldview Entertainment will co-finance and executive produce the film with Summit Entertainment. Elishia Holmes is exec producing, as is Douglas Urbanski. A June 10 production start is being eyed. I can only assume someone’s being very happy about this – as Noomi has stated numerous times that Gary Oldman is her all-time favorite actor.
The first pictures of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace on the set of “Animal Rescue” have been released (taken yesterday, March 18). Have a look at them in the gallery. Many thanks to Lindsey for sending them in!
