Noomi Rapace Could Join Tom Hardy In ANIMAL RESCUE
Deadline reports that Tom Hardy is in final talks to star in Michael K. Roskam's (Bullhead) Animal Rescue. While Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Dragon Tattoo) has been offered the female role of the film. The Boston set drama from author Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River, Shuter Island) focuses on a man who wants to shed his criminal path but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Hardy recently wrapped production on Mad Max Fury Road with Animal Rescue looking to start shooting in March. Having Hardy and Rapace in one film seems like a solid match of badasses not to mention how intense Roskam's Oscar nominated thriller Bullhead was.
