According to Screen Daily, a biopic on the late Amy Winehouse is in the works, and Noomi Rapace is looking likely to play Winehouse. August Rush director Kirsten Sheridan is looking to stick with music for what is currently known simply as Amy Winehouse, which she has written for Subotica Films and which is now out looking for financing and distribution deals. Also in negotiation? Those all-important music rights, which can make or break a biopic like this. Thereâ€™s a chance that could be a tough hurdle as Winehouseâ€™s father is also reportedly trying to get his own film about his daughter made. Rapace is at work on sci-fi thriller What Happened To Monday? and will be back in the Prometheus world for Ridley Scottâ€™s Alien: Paradise Lost, which starts shooting early next year. In music biopic terms, sheâ€™s also attached to play Maria Callas in Niki Caroâ€™s Callas.
Great news, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Paramount Pictures has picked up distribution rights to Michael Mannâ€™s long-in-the-works Ferrari project, titled Enzo Ferrari. At the same time, Noomi Rapace is in talks to star opposite Christian Bale, who will play Enzo Ferrari, the Italian auto mogul. The long-gestating project finally got traction when it secured funding from Vendian and YooZoo Bliss Film Fund. YooZoo will distribute the movie in China, while Vincent Maravalâ€™s Insiders will begin selling territories at AFM. The project adapts the 1991 book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine, written by Brock Yates. The book recounted Ferrariâ€™s ascent â€” working for Alfa Romeo, first as a racer and then as a developer, founding his own company in 1947, racing victories in the ’50s and ’60s, letting Fiat slowly take control of the company. But it also showed Ferrari’s tyrannical and manipulative nature, how he pushed drivers to the breaking point (and even death), his hatred of his lifelong marriage and his many affairs. If a deal is made, Rapace would play Ferrariâ€™s wife, Laura Dominica. The project is eyeing an $80 million budget, although Mann has a tendency to skid his numbers higher when actual shooting starts.
I’ve finally gotten my hands on the Blu-Ray of “Child 44” (available everywhere by now) and have added over 1.000 high quality screencaptures to the photo gallery. The film is not as bad as the critical consensus has sounded, but if you have read the book you wonder why much of its potential has been wasted. Please be aware that the screencaptures contain major spoilers.
It’s been very quiet around Noomi since May – which is not correct, because Noomi has been working non-stop since this time. On the other hand, that means no appearances or anything new to report. So what better time to dig down the archives and bring some new older scans to the photo gallery. Scans range from 2009 to 2015 and cover the European promotions for Sherlock Holmes, Prometheus and Child 44. Many thanks to Alvaro for guiding most of these articles my way. Very appreciated!

Article courtesy Empire. As Sir Ridley Scott prepares for the launch of his enormously satisfying sci-fi flick, The Martian, heâ€™s been talking, mostly to HeyUGuys, about his next movie: the sequel to Prometheus. Yesterday, he revealed that the title of the film was actually Alien: Paradise Lost, linking it directly to the franchise he started back in 1979. But it also set tongues wagging: what did this title mean? How do things tie into the Alien world? What does this mean for Neill Blomkampâ€™s mooted Alien sequel? And what the heck is going to happen to the disembodied head of Michael Fassbenderâ€™s David? Well, we spoke to Sir Ridley this afternoon (hear the full interview on next weekâ€™s Empire Podcast) and got some answers to those burning questions. On the title change, Sir Ridley said it had been a long time coming. At one point, Paradise was a possible title for Prometheus, but its origins stretch back further than that: â€śYears ago, I kept mulling over what Alien 2 could be. I was fiddling around with some ideas. I was always fascinated with why this thing [the xenomorph] would be made, by whom, and for what purpose? The planet it was on â€“ and I was looking at the dark side of the moon â€“ would be called Paradise. Paradise is a very ominous word…â€ť
Noomi’s next film is called “What Happened to Monday?”, but any fan’s question these days might rather be what happened to Noomi? She hasn’t been since since the Cannes Film Festival in May, and the answer is simple – work. Exciting for us, exhausting for Noomi, she is currently in Romania playing seven characters in the futuristic thriller by Tommy Wirkola. On Thursday, a press conference was held with the director as well as Noomi and co-stars Willem Dafoe and Clara Read. A news segment from the Romanian TV Neptun can be watched in the video archive, a couple of snapshots have been added to the photo gallery. Many thanks to Marinka for the heads-up!
