The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’s Noomi Rapace will star in Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell, a tale of mobster revenge about a mobster hitman, to be played by Farrell, who falls in love with Rapace’s character, a disfigured former bombshell gone wild. They then consummate their love by going on a violent spree. Sounds like a bit Bonnie and Clyde-ish without all the bank robbing, ay? The movie will be directed by Niels Arden Oplev, who also worked with Noomi on Dragon Tattoo. Dead Man Down’s projected shoot date will be in early 2012.
Sounds like Rapace is a busy busy girl, whose other movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows will be in theaters next month on December 16. Rapace was seen at the ‘Babycall’ premiere during the 6th International Rome Film Festival on October 31, 2011 in Rome, Italy. She looks absolutely stunning in red!
