Noomi Rapace Cast As Lead In Angel Of Mine

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi Rapace has been cast as the main character in the planned psychological drama Angel of Mine.

The star of the original Swedish Dragon Tattoo film, Rapace has since leveraged her breakthrough performance in that movie and its sequels into international stardom. She transitioned into Hollywood productions with her appearance in 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and followed that up with a starring role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. More recently, she has acted in Bright, What Happened to Monday?, The Price, and is set to appear in 2018’s Stockholm.

Coming from Garlin Pictures, Angel of Mine has Kim Farrant set to direct and David Regal and Luke Davies slated to pen the script. Farrant is best known for her last feature Strangerland, while Regal is known for his work on such series as According to Jim, Rugrats, and Living with Fran. As for Davies, he earned an Academy Award-nomination for his Lion screenplay.

Deadline shares the following information about the planned movie:

Based on the 2008 French film L’Empreinte de L’Ange, the story centers on Lizzie (Rapace), a mother who, still struggling to cope with the loss of her daughter several years earlier, becomes convinced that a stranger’s daughter is her own. As her obsession grows, she becomes more and more entwined in this young girl’s life, causing her to lose touch with reality.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
