To me this is an awesome team. Twilight director teaming up with the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Catherine Hardwicke and Noomi Rapace. How cool. The news is that Rapace will star in a bio pic about 1960's Swedish singer Anita Lindblom. Ola Rapace (Noomi's ex) will co-star as boxer Bosse Högberg and he has supposedly been training for this role for some time.
Shooting will begin in the fall.
This film is a bit of a departure for Hardwicke (Twilight, Thirteen) who is known for her films that are more targeted at the youth market but it sounds quite intriguing.
Rapace will next be seen kick butt in Prometheus the supposed Alien prequel.
