According to The Hollywood Reporter, Noomi Rapace is set to play Mother Teresa in a new film from Teona Strugar Mitevska, director of 2019’s God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya. Rapace will play the legendary Catholic saint in the biopic Mother, which will follow seven consecutive days at a pivotal moment in Mother Teresa’s life, the period where she decides to leave the Loreto Entally convent in Calcutta and launch her own order. Mother will be Mitevska’s English-language debut. She called Rapace, the star of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, ‘” a perfect fit” for her depiction of Mother Teresa, which will be imagined as a rebellious, almost punk figure fighting against the structures of the Catholic church. Born in Northern Macedonia, where Teresa is from, Mitevska said she “grew up with the myth of Mother Teresa” but “as an existentialist” wasn’t that interested in the religious figure until she did a documentary on her life for local TV and that she developed a new appreciation for her. “I absolutely related to her as a woman and I saw a lot of myself in her.” Mother is structured as a five-country co-production between Macedonia’s Sisters and Brother Mitevski, Belgium’s Entre Chien et Loup, Denmark’s Frau Film, the Netherlands’ Baldar Film, Sweden’s Spark Film & TV and Film i Väst.

According to Deadline, Apple TV+ has canceled the sci-fi series Constellation after a single season. The series from creator Peter Harness stars Noomi Rapace as an astronaut aboard the International Space Station when an object collides with it. After making repairs, she returns to Earth to find that pieces of her life are missing or not as she recalls them. The cancellation comes just six weeks after Constellation completed its eight-episode season in late March. The series is one of a host of sci-fi titles at Apple TV+, among them For All Mankind, Severance, Foundation, Silo and Invasion. Per usual with streaming platforms, Apple doesn’t viewing figures for Constellation; the series did not make its way into Nielsen’s streaming top 10 during its run. Along with Rapace, Constellation stars Jonathan Banks, James D’Arcy, Julian Looman, William Catlett, Barbara Sukowa and Rosie and Davina Coleman. Turbine Studios and Haut et Court TV produced the series, which filmed in Germany. Harness executive produces (via his Haunted Barn Ltd.) with David Tanner, Tracey Scoffield, Caroline Benjo, Simon Arnal, Carole Scotta, Justin Thomson, and MacLaren Entertainment’s Michelle MacLaren (who also directed two episodes) and Rebecca Hobbs.

According to Deadline, Noomi Rapace is set to star in psychological thriller Reckoner, written and directed by Nissar Modi (writer of feature Z For Zachariah) who will be making his movie directorial debut. The film is produced by XYZ Films and Two & Two Pictures. XYZ will continue world sales on the project at the upcoming Cannes market, where it first launched last May. Rapace is replacing Christina Hendricks who is no longer attached due to scheduling conflicts, we understand. In the film, an affluent woman’s (Rapace) carefully constructed life is disrupted by a young man connected to a tightly held secret from her past. Reckoner is a part of Two & Two and XYZ’s partnership to produce films from first- and second-time genre filmmakers from underrepresented demographics. Previously, they have partnered on the upcoming Hallow Road starring Rosamund Pike and Matthew Rhys and recently announced He Bled Neon starring Joe Cole. They have also collaborated on Babak Anvari’s Under The Shadow and I Came By. The film is also a part of XYZ’s New Visions slate of films. “We are immensely excited to join forces with an exceptionally talented team for Reckoner. It is an honour to have Noomi Rapace on board to complement Nissar’s electrifying directorial debut,” said Two & Two Pictures.

A new batch of articles and interviews from the “Constellation” press coverage has been added to the photo gallery, mostly from the British press and including Q&As with The Guardian and The Observer (many thanks to Alvaro for sending this in). And while we’re at it, I also found a couple of articles from the very sparse coverage for last year’s “Django”. A complete list of updates can be found below.

Noomi Rapace is the cover girl for DEK Magazine’s eighth issue, which is now available to order on their website: Rapace was already a great admirer of MacLaren’s work on episodes of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and Game of Thrones, and Constellation unites the narrative depth of such complex TV with the spectacle of cinema. “It’s sort of like our medium now has just conquered another space: we have more time to tell a story. But I will say that Constellation really feels like eight hours of cinema; we had the muscles to really explore and make it as good as we wanted, so it felt like a big studio film rather than TV.” Combining elements of science fiction and conspiracy thriller, it tells the tale of returning astronaut Jo Ericsson, a part that Rapace immediately felt could have been written for her. It’s the kind of intelligent storytelling that she enjoys as a viewer too.

“There’s so much going on. And I love that because a lot of the things I read, or when I watch things, I just feel, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’ The audience is not stupid. And I like it when I feel it’s something to figure out.” Her favourite films are those like Memento and Inception, with strong characters and intricate plots that demand multiple viewings, which reflect Rapace’s own perspective on life. “Life is science fiction; life is fucking weird. So many times I thought I knew what life was, and then I was like, ‘Wait, what? No, I don’t know shit.’ I feel the older I get, the more I feel I don’t know. I would say my life many times has felt like I’m living in a movie that is science fiction mixed with drama.”
