Tradecraft: Noomi Rapace Circles Lead Role in Spy Thriller Unlocked
Deadline reports that the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, is in talks to star in a spy thriller called Unlocked for her fellow Swede, director Mikael Håfström (Shanghai, Escape Plan). According to the trade, the highly-touted Black List script by Peter O'Brien follows "a female CIA interrogator duped into getting a terrorist to provide key information to the wrong side. It puts her at the center of a plot to launch a biological attack in London." Rapace also has another spy movie in production, Child 44, alongside Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy's Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy, based on the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award-winning novel by Tom Rob Smith. Unlocked, an indie production, is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Georgina Townsley and Erik Howsam. Personally, I think Rapace is one of the most exciting actresses working, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her topline a spy film!
