Last month a press release was sent out confirming that Noomi Rapace (above, Prometheus) was starring in a new sci-fi horror called Rupture. The press release stated that the film would be heading to Cannes looking for buyers, and it has arrived, and with it comes the first piece of sales art, which you can view below.
Noomi Rapace (“Prometheus,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” “The Drop”) has landed the lead role in “Rupture” – the sci-fi adventure thriller from AMBI Group – the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi.
Iervolino and Bacardi (“The Humbling,” “In Dubious Battle” “All Roads Lead to Rome”) are teaming with “American Sniper” producer Andrew Lazar and his Tango Pictures Production banner to produce the film. Tango is a partnership between Christina Weiss Lurie, Steven Shainberg, and Lazar. Christina Weiss Lurie (“Inside Job,” “Adam,” “Broken English”), will serve as producer as well.
Plot details remain closely guarded but Rapace will play a single mother who, struggling to raise her son alone, is abducted by a mysterious organization. While trying to escape, she uncovers an extraordinary secret about herself.
Steven Shainberg (“Secretary”) is directing the film, which is based on a story by he and Brian Nelson (“Hard Candy,” “30 Days of Night,” “Devil”). Nelson wrote the screenplay.
AMBI Distribution, the worldwide sales arm of AMBI Group is handling international sales and will formally present the project in Cannes.
Principal photography on the film will commence in June.
Commented Iervolino, “’Rupture’ is an ‘event’ movie and perfect vehicle for Noomi to showcase her immense talent. We’re excited to bring this project to life with her in the lead.”
Lady Monika Bacardi adds, “Noomi is an amazing young talent with tremendous range and broad international appeal so we’re very excited to be working with her on this film.”
