Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are in negotiations for "Child 44," set up at Ridley Scott's Scott Free banner and to be directed by Daniel Espinosa. The script, penned by Richard Price from Tom Rob Smith's novel, is a thriller set in the 1950s centering on a member of the Soviet police (Hardy) investigating a series of child muders who himself becomes the target of his government's suspicions. Rapace, who also starred in Scott's "Prometheus," would play his wife. The pair is also due to shoot "Animal Rescue" in March for Fox Searchlight.

"Child 44" will shoot later in the spring in Budapest.
