The 40-year-old half-Spanish actressis set to star in the contained Black List thriller O2, which will be directed by Franck Khalfoun.
Crawland The Hills Have Eyesreboot 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 Millenniumseries: 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, Prometheusand Child 44.
The 32-year-old part-Spanish singer-songwriter has picked up four NME (New Musical Express) Awards nominations.
FKA Twigs, who had previously earned two NME Awards nods, is up for Best British Solo Act and Best Solo Act In The World.
She’s also nominated in the Best British Album and Best Album In The World categories for her acclaimed album Magdalene.

For this new track, the “Liquid Dreams” performers have slowed things down similar to the Backstreet Boys‘ underrated single “Incomplete.”
“‘Skydive’ is a dramatic song,” O-Town’s Trevor Penick confirms. “It starts with a simple piano and vocal, and by the end you hear a seventy-piece orchestra, and all four of us belting it out in 4-part harmony.”
“Skydive,” co-written by Samuel Adams and Marcel Wildy, was co-produced by O-Town member Jacob Underwood alongside Mark Suhonen.
Lines & Circles, due out on August 3, will be O-Town’s third full-length and first album since 2002’s O2.
“We started this reunion purely for the fun of it,” said Underwood. “We had discussed a summer tour to perform our old songs and finally give the fans what they’ve been asking us for the last 10 years. However, once we began working, what developed was something a little more ambitious. The ideas kept flying and we couldn’t help but start making new music.”
The 34-year-old Latino singer/actor is reuniting with his fellow O-Town members to make new music a decade after the band disbanded.
Estrada and his O-Town band mates – Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick and Dan Miller – announced on Monday that they would be making a comeback, rebooting the group’s official website and announcing that more specifics would be announced in the coming weeks.
O-Town was originally formed on the MTV-produced reality television series Making the Band back in 2000. After releasing two albums, the group disbanded in 2003.
O-Town fans can expect to hear new music, the first batch from the group since 2002’s O2 album, according to Underwood.
“We started this reunion purely for the fun of it,” says Underwood. “We had discussed a summer tour to perform our old songs and finally give the fans what they’ve been asking us for the last 10 years. However, once we began working, what developed was something a little more ambitious. The ideas kept flying and we couldn’t help but start making new music.”
“Each of us has different reasons for agreeing to do this again, a decade later,” adds Estrada. “Mine has to start with the fans. I never knew how much I would miss them. I never quite realized how much of an impact we had on them.”
O-Town’s 2001 self-titled album has sold 1.7 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and its first two singles, “Liquid Dreams” and “All Or Nothing,” reached No. 10 and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, respectively. O2 followed with 257,000 copies sold; after the group’s dissolution, Ashley Parker Angel‘s 2006 album Soundtrack to Your Life has sold 184,000 copies to date. Angel will not be part of the group’s 2014 comeback.
“We are blessed to be able to apply what we’ve learned to create something stimulating and beautiful, that we can call ours,” says Underwood. “This isn’t just a reunion for us. It’s a new beginning.”
Since leaving the band, Estrada has turned to acting, appearing in 2011’s Tainted Rose.
