EXCLUSIVE: Yvonne Strahovski is set to star opposite Noomi Rapace in the Kim Farrant-directed thriller Angel Of Mine, which follows a mother Lizzie (Rapace) who, still struggling to cope with the loss of her daughter several years earlier, becomes convinced that a stranger’s daughter is, in fact, her own.
Strahovski, who will star in the soon-to-be-released second season of Hulu’s acclaimed series The Handmaid’s Tale, will play Claire, the woman who Lizzie alleges has stolen her daughter.
The film, from SixtyFourSixty and Garlin Pictures, is based on French feature, L’Empreinte with the adaption penned by Lion scribe Luke Davies. Brian Etting, Josh Etting, and Su Armstrong are producing the projects. Exec producers include Robert Ogden Barnum and Nadine de Barros of Fortitude International as well as Davies and Brian Rosen.
Screen Australia, in association with Film Victoria, provided the principal production investment.
Strahovski, next seen on the big screen in 20th Century Fox’s The Predator, out September 14, is repped by Paradigm, Sue Barnett, McKeon/Myones Entertainment and attorney Gretchen Rush.
