The Independent has a fantastic new interview with Noomi in its weekend edition. They talk about many of her upcoming projects, including “Child 44″, “Alive Alone”, “What Happened to Monday?” and also traveling the world, working with Tom Hardy and the ups and downs of moving constantly. A very interesting article. Find a preview belwo, the complete piece is here.
Noomi Rapace made her name starring in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels in the Millennium trilogy looking like she had just left a new-wave punk band – clad in a leather suit with her black hair combed forward over her left eye, and numerous ear and nose piercings. She was a new type of female hero, combining brains â€“ an ace computer hacker â€“ and brawn. Her gut-wrenching performance as Lisbeth Salander helped propel herself and the books into the international stratosphere. Itâ€™s this complete immersion in her role that explains why the 34-year-old actress looks so emaciated when we meet. At first I was taken aback by how different she is from when we last met, less than two years ago. The dark locks seen in Prometheus have been dyed blond. And her frame, which was then toned by doing an impressive amount of Bikram yoga â€“ an activity pivotal to her character in the Brian De Palma flop Passion â€“ has now dissipated. The weight loss is because she is currently shooting Alive Alone, in which she plays a heroin addict and prostitute who gets entwined in New York with a former detainee from Guantanamo Bay. So, no need to call in the medics then.
Fox Searchlight has set a release date for “Animal Rescue” – September 19, 2014. But not only that, the film has changed its title to “The Drop”. The film stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini, John Ortiz and James Frecheville. “The Drop” focuses on a man (Tom Hardy) who wants to shed his criminal path but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman who crosses paths with the protagonist when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home. Author Dennis Lehane adapted the film from his own short story that first appeared in â€˜Boston Noir.â€™ Previous Lehane movie adaptations include â€˜Mystic River,â€™ â€˜Shutter Islandâ€™ and â€˜Gone Baby Gone.â€™
According to Rope of Silicon, Summit has released the first pictures from Child 44, the new film from Daniel Espinosa starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Paddy Considine, Fares Fares and Vincent Cassel. Scripted by Richard Price (“The Wire”, The Color of Money), the film is based on the first novel in author Tom Rob Smith’s best-selling trilogy, telling the story of a man (Hardy) fighting to reclaim his humanity from a system that requires him to sacrifice it in order to survive. There is no release date yet for the film, but it will be arriving Fall 2014.
