In November 2020, it was revealed that Noomi Rapace will play the lead role in the Swedish feature film "Black Crab," directed by Adam Berg. Today, Netflix has announced the additional star-filled cast.
Joining Noomi Rapace are; Jakob Oftebro (The Letter for the King, Hamilton, Norsemen), Erik Enge (Tigers, The Bridge), Dar Salim (The Devil's Double, Game of Thrones, Darkland), and Ardalan Esmaili (The Charmer, Greyzone).
The cast also includes; Aliette Opheim (Thicker Than Water, Caliphate, and upcoming Netflix series Katla) and David Dencik (Quicksand, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and upcoming Danish Netflix series The Chestnut Man).
Adam Berg, director: "I'm very happy and proud to have such a strong cast breathe life into this movie and our characters. These skilled actors, their eyes, voices, faces, and bodies will carry us through the story. They will make us feel the brutality of war, the importance of hope in a hopeless world, and the hard price you have to pay for survival. They will bring beautiful humanity to the cold harsh world that is the Black Crab."
Noomi Rapace is playing the lead role in the Swedish film based on the acclaimed novel Black Crab by Jerker Virdborg. The film is to be directed by award-winning Adam Berg and will be Rapace’s big return to Scandinavia and her native country Sweden, after spending the last ten years abroad starring in films and series such as Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes, and What Happened to Monday as well as independent films Daisy Diamond and Beyond.
Black Crab is a Scandinavian action thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by climate change and war. During an endless winter, six soldiers are sent on a dangerous mission across the frozen sea to transport a package that could finally end the war. Equipped with weapons and ice skates, unaware of what they're carrying, or who they can trust, the mission challenges their beliefs and forces them to ask: what are they willing to sacrifice for their own survival?
The feature film is produced by Malin Idevall together with Mattias Montero and directed by Adam Berg. After a successful career in commercials and music videos, Black Crab will be Berg’s first full-length feature as director and writer. Previous works include Philips “Carousel" winner of Grand Prix in Cannes, Assassin Creed “Black Flag” and Happiness "All Apologies”.
Black Crab will release globally on Netflix in 2022.
