We can’t get enough of Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, who we first saw her as in 2009’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the follow-up films, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. She also turned up in the TV adaptation, starring in 2010’s Millennium.

She’s now signed on for a new role, which leans more toward paternal than the badass tech wiz we know her for.

Rapace stars opposite Hilmir Snaer Gudnason in the forthcoming Lamb, which is deemed a horror film by Entertainment Weekly.

Rapace and Gudnason portray a married couple, Maria and Ingvar, living on their farm in Iceland. They desperately want a child and to grow a family, but it’s not quite working out. When one of their sheep gives birth to a baby lamb, they bring the lamb inside and treat her like their baby.

In the new trailer, we see the lamb being fed by bottle, sleeping in a crib and being coddled. When a friend comes over, Ingvar says to him, “It’s happiness,” beaming with joy.

Maria even yells at the other sheep to “Go away!” as she wants to be alone with her family.

It doesn’t sound all that scary, just yet. But, since it’s a horror film, there is surely more to come.

Lamb is directed by Valdimar Jóhannsson, who co-wrote the story with poet Sjón, which is set to release later this year.

Even the cat thinks this is an odd dynamic, what about you?
