Shooting wrapped on the movie in September, and it is currently in post. WestEnd Films is handling worldwide sales and is at AFM this week with a “Close” promo.
The film follows Rapace’s character as as she takes on a job looking after a rich heiress. After a violent kidnap attempt, the pair have to go on the run to save their lives.
The cast includes Sophie Nélisse (“The Book Thief”), Eoin Macken (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”) and Indira Varma (“Game of Thrones”).
The film is directed by Vicky Jewson who co-wrote with Producer Rupert Whitaker, who produced alongside Jason Newmark. Braden Aftergood (“Wind River”), Sarah Radclyffe (“Les Misérables”) and Dennis Davidson (“Bitter Harvest”) executive produce.
London-based WestEnd acquired “Close” under the banner of their recently launched female audience brand, WeLove.
