Noomi Rapace won’t be alive alone for long…
The 34-year-old half-Spanish actress, who was originally announced as the leading lady in Alive Alone at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, has two new co-stars.
Rapace was originally set to star opposite Matthias Schoenaerts in the Thunder Road-produced drama. But Schoenaerts had to pull out of the project for personal reasons.
But Rapace won’t be co-starless for long…
Idris Elba and Sam Worthington have just joined the cast, with filming expected to start this March.
The New York-set drama marks the feature helming debut of Khurram Longi, who will direct the project from his own script.
Elba stars as an ex-detainee of Guantanamo Bay working as a taxi driver, and Rapace plays a prostitute on the run from a feared crime boss (Worthington). When their worlds collide, they unexpectedly find salvation in one another.
Elba and Rapace previously co-starred together in the sort-of prequel to Ridley Scott‘s Alien, Prometheus.
Rapace, who rose to acclaim after starring in the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film and its sequels in the Millennium trilogy, most recently starred in Brian De Palma’s erotic thriller Passion.
