EXCLUSIVE: Noomi Rapace will play the desperate mother of a kidnapped child in The Price, which worldwide rights holder Cargo Entertainment is selling at AFM.

Buyers have responded strongly to the package about a woman who learns she can only recover her kidnapped son if she provides a blonde girl of the same age in exchange.

Writer-director Siofra Campbell and the producers are ramping up for a February Berlin shoot. Peggy Cafferty and Patrick Campbell serve as producers alongside Germany’s Sven Woldt.

Cargo president Mark Lindsay and his team have closed early deals on The Price in Spain (Corbi Media), Indonesia (PT Prima Cinema Multimedia), the Philippines (Pioneer Films), Vietnam (Galaxy Studio) and the Middle East (Phoenicia Pictures International).

Lindsay’s sales slate include Mickey Rourke drama Irish Thunder and the Protozoa Pictures thriller Zipper that Darren Aronofsky is producing in which Patrick Wilson plays a man whose obsession with women threatens everything he holds dear.

The roster also features two films that premiered recently in Toronto: Kill Me Three Times starring Simon Pegg, set to open through Magnolia Pictures in the US, and the Kristen Wiig drama Welcome To Me from Gary Sanchez Productions.
