Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom to star in terrorist thriller Unlocked


In case you were wondering what Noomi Rapace was going to kick ass in next, that answer comes in the form of UNLOCKED. Helmed by director Michael Apted (THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER, THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH), UNLOCKED tells the story of a CIA interrogator (Rapace), who unwittingly provides information to terrorists and then must race against the clock to stop a biological warfare attack on London. The film will also star Orlando Bloom (THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES), Michael Douglas (ANT-MAN), John Malkovich (RED) and Toni Collette (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE). Based on a screenplay by Peter O’Brien, this flick is being touted as a "female BOURNE-style thriller," and went into principal photography this past Monday.

While I'm not too keen on the Bourne comparison (even the last Bourne flick wasn't a Bourne flick), Noomi Rapace is proving to be one of the strongest female leads in modern cinema. Her take on Lisbeth Salander in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO has most people talking up the Swedish version over David Fincher's iteration, and she's since gone on to kick ass in other roles stateside, such as Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS. If there's any actress that can pull it off, it'd be her. Certainly more so than Orlando Bloom.

UNLOCKED is now filming for a release sometime in 2015.
