Noomi Rapace is ready to thrill…
The 40-year-old half-Spanish actressis set to star in the contained Black List thriller O2, which will be directed by Franck Khalfoun.
Crawl and The Hills Have Eyes reboot writer-director Alexandre Ajais producing and supervising artistic direction.
Written by Christie LeBlanc, the script was a buzzed-about prospect on the 2016 Black List.
The film centers on a woman who wakes up in a cryogenic medical pod, alone, with no memory, and no way out. All she knows is that she has 90 minutes of oxygen left and must figure out how to save herself, while discovering who she really is, who put her there, and most importantly – why?
Aja says about the film, which is due to enter production in the summer, “One of the most compelling scripts I’ve read in years – a pure survival experience with a great mystery at its core. Even without the oxygen running out, the suspense on the page left me breathless.”
Rapace, who recently was cast in the thriller The Thicket, previously starred in the Swedish film adaptations of the Millennium series: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. Her other credits include Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Prometheus and Child 44.
