Noomi Rapace Goes Sci-Fi For “Boy”

Noomi Rapace is set to star in the science-fiction thriller “Boy” for Lotus Entertainment with Danish helmer Jonas Arnby slated to direct.

Mattson Tomlin penned the script for the project which made it to the 2015 Black List. The story centers on a teen boy who is born with special abilities and spends his childhood switching names and cities to keep his identity hidden.

When his conservative, suburban neighborhood blames him for a mass, tragic event, he and his mother must flee from the authorities who are looking to destroy him and seek the support of an underground rebellion group.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Ben Pugh and Leon Clarance are producing with filming to begin in August.
