Noomi Rapace Will Be Alive, Alone
With Matthias Schoenaerts

13 May 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

After fending off rampaging Engineers and dealing with chestburster issues in Prometheus, then blackmailing Colin Farrell in Dead Man Down, you’d think Noomi Rapace would enjoy a film where she gets to watch horses running in a field or have a lovely cup of hot tea. Nope: she’s on for another dramatic thriller, signing on with Rust And Bone’s Matthias Schoenaerts for Alive Alone.

Khurram Longi will make his directing debut with the film, which finds a woman on the run from a crime boss. She starts an unexpected relationship with a man who spent time as a “guest” at Guantanamo Bay. We don’t expect the relationship to be a particularly easy one.

Longi wrote the script, which landed on both the Black List of praised scripts in Hollywood and the UK’s own Brit List. Filming is set to kick off next January in New York and the producers will be touting the rights to this one at Cannes, which gets going this week.

Rapace will next be seen with Tom Hardy in Animal Rescue and then teams up with, er, Tom Hardly for Russian thriller Child 44. Schoenaerts has Blood Ties and The Loft awaiting release, and he’s also cropping up in Animal Rescue.

So technically not alone
Alive,and alone but also joined by Matthias schoenaerts does therefore means she's just alive. She's a great actress and will probably be underused as she was in Sherlock 2. She was the best thing in Prometheus. More
