Produced by Toronto’s Nicholas Tabarrok of Darius Films banner, Budreau’s Lumanity Productions banner and Jonathan Bronfman’s JoBro Productions, the Canada/Sweden copro will star Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace in the lead roles.

Filming will take place in Stockholm and Hamilton, ON, while post-production will be completed in the Swedish capital.

Executive producers on the project, which is based on the 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis that saw the hostages bond with their captors, are Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum and Aversano Films’ Scott Aversano and Will Russell-Shapiro, as well as William Santor, John Hills and Andrew Chang-Sang for Oakville, ON-based financier Productivity Media.

The film will once again see Budreau directing Ethan Hawke after the pair also worked together on the Sudbury-shot feature Born to be Blue in which Hawke played jazz musician Chet Baker.

California-based Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales on Stockholm. The company will begin shopping the project at European Film Market, which runs from Feb. 9 to 17 in Berlin.

Hawke is represented by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and attorney George Sheanshang, while Rapace is represented by CAA, Magnolia Entertainment, and attorney Howard Fishman of HWHM+F. Budreau meanwhile is represented by APA and The Sanford Ehrlich Company.
