EXCLUSIVE: Michael Shannon and Matthias Schweighöfer from Valkyrie have joined Siofra Campbell’s thriller, which Cargo represents for world sales.

As previously announced, in-demand Noomi Rapace plays the mother of a kidnapped child who realises her ex-partner is the instigator and must deal with the fall-out when he is double-crossed.

Radiant Films International’s Mimi Steinbauer has introduced the project to buyers in her additional new role as Cargo’s president of distribution following the pact between the companies announced last week.

Peggy Cafferty and Patrick Campbell produce and principal photography is set for September in Europe.

Cargo’s roster includes Welcome To Me starring Kristen Wiig, political thriller and Sundance world premiere Zipper, Josh Duhamel starrer Lost In The Sun in post and Derrick Borte’s upcoming drama London Town to star Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
