Paddy Considine Set For Child 44
He'll join Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace

Good news for Paddy Considine fans: despite the success of directorial debut Tyrannosaur, he hasn’t disappeared behind the camera, as The World’s End is about to prove. And he’s scored another acting gig, signing on alongside Zero Dark Thirty’s Fares Fares for Child 44.

Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is gearing up to make the film, which finds 1950s Soviet police officer Hardy investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. But as he digs deeper into the case, his own government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him. Rapace is set to play his conflicted wife and Gary Oldman joined up in March as the chief of police, who investigates Hardy.

Fares (who worked for Espinosa with fellow Child 44 actor Joel Kinnaman in Easy Money, which pre-dates Safe House but only hits UK cinemas this week) is on as one of Hardy’s colleagues, while Considine’s role is being kept quiet for now.

Considine, as mentioned above, will be back on our screens in The World’s End (see the trailer at the bottom of the page), due out July 19. Fares has just shot The Keeper Of Lost Causes.
