According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Apted is to take the director’s chair for “Unlocked”, a CIA thriller set to star Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas, and Orlando Bloom. Based on a screenplay by Peter Oâ€™Brien, “Unlocked” tells the story of 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. Apted is set to begin shooting November 3. “I am delighted to introduce this fresh, smart European thriller to buyers in Toronto,â€ť says Alex Walton, who is representing international rights and is pre-selling the project to foreign buyers at the Toronto Film Festival. â€śWith three major studio movies in production, Noomi Rapace is becoming one of the hottest female international stars working today. When you add Michael Apted, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom, you have a commercial package that I am confident will draw strong interest.â€ť

Yesterday, “The Drop” world-premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Noomi Rapace has been present to promote the film, alongside co-stars Tom Hardy and Matthias Schoenarts. Over 100 pictures have been added to the photo gallery. In case you wonder if Noomi left her eyebrows in Sweden, check the full size versions of the images – everything seems to be still there :-) Many thanks to Lindsey for contributing a great bunch of pictures. Enjoy!
IMDb has posted a new clip from the upcoming “The Drop”, in which Nadia (Noomi Rapace) explains her scar to Bob (Tom Hardy). The clip can be watched in the video archive.
Three new video clips have been added to the archive. First, a making of for “The Drop”, including interviews with Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenarts. Then, a speedy television spot for the film. The third addition is a public service announcement that Noomi has done for ECPAT Sverige. While I wish my Swedish was better, I think it’s raising awareness for the prevention of child abuse. Noomi has followed in her “Child 44″ co-star Joel Kinnerman’s footsteps, who’s made a very successful PSA for ECPAT Sverige in the first place. Click the previews below to watch all new videos.
Here’s a first clip from “The Drop”, due out next month, in which Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace choose a name for their found dog. Watch the scene in the video archive. The Drop marks the return of MichaĂ«l R. Roskam to the director’s chair for the first time since he made his debut with Bullhead. The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – ‘money drops’ – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhoodâ€™s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
