Noomi Rapace ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "Prometheus") and her ex-husband Ola Rapace ("Wallander") are set to star in the Catherine Hardwicke-directed biopic of Swedish singer Anita Lindblom says Indiewire.

The story follows Lindblom's romance with boxer Bosse Högberg which found its way to the tabloids. The story explores the Swedish celebrity culture of the 1960s.

Peter Birro penned the script and shooting is slated to begin this Fall. Ola Rapace has been training as a boxer for this role four years.

Helena Danielsson, Malte Forsell Maria Dahlin are producing.
