Deadline bring word that Philip Seymour Hoffman is in talks to join Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman, Paddy Considine and Fares Fares in Daniel Espinosa’s ‘Child 44,’ a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan. An adaptation of the Tom Rob Smith bestseller, ‘Child 44′ focuses on a member of the Soviet military police (Tom Hardy) who investigates a series of nasty child murders during the Stalin-era Soviet Union. His biggest impediment is a government that refuses to acknowledge a serial killer is in their midst.
Philip Seymour Hoffman is coming off an Oscar nominated turn in ‘The Master,’ and he’s starring in the sequel ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’ Hoffman joins ‘Child 44′ mid-swing, as principal photography began on June 10th in Prague. The synopsis for the ‘Child 44′ novel is as follows.
According to reports, Tom Hardy will star in ‘The Outsider,’ which looks set to mark the English-language debut of Japanese director Takashi Miike. The project, originally set up at Warner Bros Pictures, will be independently financed to shoot in Japan in early 2014. The film described as an epic story set in post-World War II Japan, chronicling the life of a former American G.I. who becomes part of the Japanese Yakuza.
Takashi Miike has helmed more than 60 Japanese-language films including ‘Ichi the Killer,’ ’13 Assassins’ (one of my favorite films) and ‘Audition.’ Last seen in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘Lawless,’ Tom Hardy next stars in the franchise reboot ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ He also stars in the Dennis Lehane-scripted and Michael R. Roskam-directed ‘Animal Rescue’ opposite Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts and James Gandolfini, and in the Daniel Espinosa-directed ‘Child 44.’ Source: Deadline.
According to The Wrap, Paddy Considine and Fares Fares are in negotiations to join Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Gary Oldman in ‘Child 44,’ a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan. ‘The Killing’ star Joel Kinnaman was previously reported to be in negotiations as well.
Paddy Considine, who co-starred in ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘Cinderella Man’ for Universal Pictures, will soon be seen in the studio’s upcoming comedy ‘The World’s End,’ which reunites him with his ‘Hot Fuzz’ co-stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, as well as director Edgar Wright. Fares Fares, who previously worked with Joel Kinnaman on ‘Safe House’ and the ‘Snabba Cash’ films, is best known for his key supporting role in Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’
These first images have arrived online of Tom Hardy on the set of Michael R. Roskam’s (Bullhead) ‘Animal Rescue.’ Co-starring Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini, John Ortiz and James Frecheville, the film focuses on a man (Tom Hardy) 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. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman with a scar across her entire neck who crosses paths with the protagonist when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home.
Chernin Entertainment and Mike Larocca are producing ‘Animal Rescue,’ which author Dennis Lehane adapted from his own short story that first appeared in ‘Boston Noir.’ ‘Animal Rescue’ is shooting in New York, where Fox Searchlight is relocating the story rather than film in Massachusetts, where Lehane adaptations ‘Mystic River,’ ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone’ all took place.

Loving this cast. Heat Vision send word that Gary Oldman is signing on to join Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman in ‘Child 44,’ a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan. Oldman recently landed a major role in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ and wrapped up shooting on the remake of ‘RoboCop,’ which is lead by Kinnaman as the eponymous character.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, ‘Child 44′ is set during the 1950s and follows a member of the Soviet military police (Tom Hardy) who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own government’s suspicions. Oldman will play the head of police who is acting on those suspicions. Joel Kinnaman will play Hardy’s ambitious and murderous nemesis, while Noomi Rapace is playing Hardy’s chameleon-like wife.

Heat Vision hear that Joel Kinnaman is in negotiations to join Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in ‘Child 44,’ a Soviet-era thriller being produced by Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan. ‘Safe House’ helmer Daniel Espinosa is directing the film, which is set in the 1950s and follows a member of the Soviet police who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own government’s suspicions. If a deal is finalized, the move would re-team Kinnaman with Espinosa, who directed him in ‘Snabba Cash’ and ‘Safe House.’
Joel Kinnaman is coming off a starring turn in MGM’s remake of ‘RoboCop,’which wrapped shooting earlier this year. He is reprising his breakout role as a police detective for the third season of AMC’s thriller, ‘The Killing.’ Additionally, it was recently reported that he is set to join Liam Neeson in the Jaume Collet-Serra helmed action-film, ‘Run All Night.’
