Netflix Swoops In on Female-Led Action Thriller ‘Close’ With Noomi Rapace (Exclusive)
Netflix has marked World Women’s Day with the pickup of “Close,” a female-led, adrenaline-charged action-thriller starring Noomi Rapace. The streamer has sealed a multi-territory deal for the film that includes the U.S., U.K. and Australia.

Netflix picked up “Close” from WestEnd Films, which had it under the banner of its female-skewed WeLove brand, which is aimed at developing and producing female-specific content and promoting female talent.

Inspired by the life of bodyguard Jacquie Davis, the film stars Swedish actress Rapace (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”) in the lead role. Sophie Nelisse (“The Book Thief”), Eoin Macken (“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”), and Indira Varma (“Game of Thrones”) also star.

Davis built a formidable career in the male-dominated world of professional bodyguards. She was a consultant on the film and helped visualize and develop the action sequences.

In the movie, which was shot in Morocco and the U.K., bodyguard and counter-terrorism expert Sam (Rapace) takes a job protecting Zoe (Nelisse), a rich young heiress. Neither party is keen on the arrangement, but when a violent kidnap attempt goes wrong, the pair are forced to work together and go on the run. Together they need to unravel who was behind the kidnap and hunt them down.

Benedict Cumberbatch Struggles With Addiction in Showtime’s Darkly Comic ‘Patrick Melrose’ Trailer – Watch

Benedict Cumberbatch Struggles With Addiction in Showtime’s Darkly Comic ‘Patrick Melrose’ Trailer – Watch
“It’s a fucking nightmare being lucid,” says Benedict Cumberbatch in Showtime’s upcoming limited series “Patrick Melrose.” That statement encapsulates the blunt, yet entirely self-aware attitude of the title character, played by Cumberbatch, who’s been through hell and back — worse for wear from his ongoing substance abuse.

The series follows Melrose, who has survived a harrowing childhood of abuse by his father and tacitly condoned by his own mother. As an adult, he’s now a husband and father who is struggling to gets his substance abuse under control on the way to recovery. While the subject matter is certainly grim, the series’ tone is darkly comic, in the vein of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” The series also skewers the upper classes in 1960s France, 1980s New York, and Britain in the early 2000s.
