A new film exploring the heist behind the psychological condition “Stockholm Syndrome” has snagged Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace as the leads.
They’ll star in STOCKHOLM which is being written and directed by Robert Budreau with inspiration coming from Daniel Lang’s 1974 New Yorker article The Bank Drama which covered the event. In 1973 a group of robbers took over a bank in Stockholm and, over the ordeal, the hostages began to bond with their captors and turn against the authorities trying to save them.
Shooting is set to begin in April with eyes on a 2018 release. Hawke has a role in Luc Besson’s VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS later this year whilst Rapace will be seen in ALIEN: COVENANT as well as UNLOCKED and Maria Callas’ biopic CALLAS.
