Casting News – Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in Talks to Star in “Child 44”

According to an article on The Hollywood Reporter, stars Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace are currently in talks to play the leads in Child 44. Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan will be producing the Soviet-era thriller and Daniel Espinosa will be directing.

The film is about a member of Soviet police and as he investigating child murder cases, the Soviet government begins to become suspicious of his behavior.  If they get cast in these roles, Hardy would play the officer and Rapace would his wife. However, Hardy and Rapace will be quite busy shooting Fox Searchlight’s drama Animal Rescue together in March.
