You may have heard of the psychological phenomenon known as "Stockholm Syndrome" but do you know the event that gave it that name? It's a story set to be explored in new heist thriller Stockholm, starring Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace.

Born To Be Blue's Robert Budreau is writing and directing this one, taking his inspiration from Daniel Lang's 1974 New Yorker article The Bank Drama. It chronicled how, in 1973, a group of robbers took hostages in a Stockholm bank, only for those under threat to bond with their captors and turn against the authorities

"Stockholm will offer moviegoers a raw glimpse into intense events that transpired over four decades ago coining a psychological condition that still intrigues the world today," says Sierra/Affinity's Jonathan Kier. "With Robert’s creative direction coupled with Ethan and Noomi’s tremendous talents, we are certain audiences around the globe will be captivated by this thrilling true story."

Budreau will have the cameras cranking in April.
