Gary Oldman has just signed on to join Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in Daniel Espinosa's "Child 44".
The Tom Rob Smith novel revolves around a former war hero named Leo Demidov (Hardy) who believes in Stalin's rule in 1950s Soviet Union. He then investigates a series of child murders and is stripped of his rank in result, as the country is trying to protect the illusion of being crime-free. Demidov struggles to find the truth behind the murders and why the government is hiding them. He confides in his wife (Rapace) thinking she is the only person he can really trust, but she is hiding some secrets of her own. Oldman plays the head of police, looking into the government conspiracy.
Oldman and Hardy have worked together on several projects to date. The most iconic being Hardy as Bane and Goldman as Commissioner Gordon in "The Dark Knight Rises". They were also both in the spy-thriller "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and the spaghetti western "Lawless". Both men have exceptional acting chops and I thoroughly enjoy the movies they are in together. Hopefully "Child 44" proves to be no different.
"Child 44" will hit AMC Theatres in 2015.
