It’s safe to say that if Noomi Rapace hasn’t yet earned a place in your roster for action fandom and entertainment, you don’t deserve her. The star of the Millenium trilogy as well as actioners Bright and Close is already on deck for more thrills between now and next year, including having since reconvened with her What Happened To Monday? director Tommy Wirkola for their latest offering, The Trip (I Onde Dager).
The film was announced back in September with XYZ Films financing the pic and launching sales out of the Toronto International Film Festival, with Nordisk Film Distribution handling its local release. It also stars Atle Antonsen, and headlines Rapace with actor Askel Hennie who last appeared with Ruby Rose and Jean Reno in Ryuhei Kitamura’s actioner, Doorman, and has Wirkola directing from a script he wrote with Nick Ball and John Niven.
The film will follow a dysfunctional husband (Hennie) and wife (Rapace) who head to a remote lakeside cabin under the guise of reconnecting, but each has secret designs to kill the other. Before they can carry out their respective plans, unexpected visitors arrive and the couple is faced with a greater danger than anything they could have plotted.
The Trip opens in the Nordics this July. Peep the trailer above!
