It seems that Noomi Rapace is really into bro-ing out with buff, Euro actors and frankly, who can blame her? She’s currently in the midst of doing back-to-back films with Tom Hardy — “Animal Rescue” which went in front of cameras this past spring and the upcoming thriller “Child 44” — and now she’s gearing up for another movie with one of her ‘Rescue’ co-stars.
Rapace will be teaming with rising star Matthias Schoenarts (“Bullhead,” “Rust And Bone“) for “Alive Alone,” and it sounds pretty promising. Penned by Khurram Longi (who will also make his directorial debut on the picture), the 2007 Brit List approved script will chronicle “the relationship between an ex-detainee of Guantanamo Bay, and a woman who is on the run from a crime boss.” It does have a very faint whiff of “Dead Man Down“-esque flavor to it, which we hope goes away, but any opportunity to see Schoenaerts and Rapace on screen together is fine by us.
Filming will begin next January in New York City, but until then, both actors are quite busy. As we mentioned, Rapace has “Child 44” this summer while Schoenaerts is currently filming the comedy “A Little Chaos” with Kate Winslet before moving on to team up with Michelle Williams on “Suite Francaise.” [Deadline]
