There’s a legendary role in Noomi Rapace’s future …
The 35-year-old half-Spanish actress has signed on to portray iconic opera singer Maria Callas in the feature biopic Callas.
Niki Caro is attached to direct the film from a screenplay she adapted from Alfonso Signorini’s biography Too Proud, Too Fragile.
The biopic focuses on the passionate relationship between the diva and Aristotle Onassis, which spanned almost two decades.
This is a long-gestating project that resurfaced at the Cannes Film Festival last year, before Rapace and Content’s involvement.
Rapace, who most recently joined SND’s What Happened To Monday?, is the latest Latina actress to portray the opera singer.
Spanish actress Paz Vega appeared as Callas in 2014’s Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman.
