Rapace Brings “Passion” To Her Latest Film

She may be starring in the highly anticipated sci-fi thriller Prometheus… But it looks like Noomi Rapace’s follow-up project will showcase her passionate side.

The 32-year-old Half-Spanish actress—who most recently appeared in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows—will be starring opposite Rachel McAdams in Brian De Palma‘s latest thriller Passion. And, if the first of the film’s on-set photos is any indication, Rapace and McAdams will be steaming up the screen.

Rachel McAdams & Noomi Rapace

Sporting daring red lipsticks, Rapace and McAdams are pictured in an intimate scene where they are about to lock lips.

Passion— a loose remake of Alain Corneau‘s 2010 French film Love Crime—follows a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Rapace stars as Isabelle, while McAdams portrays Christine.

Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual case associated with someone who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé Isabelle is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing.

Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over Isabelle, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out.

The erotic thriller is set to be shopped for distribution at this year’s Cannes Film Festival later this month. Dominic Cooper, Karoline Herfurth and Paul Anderson also star in the film.
