Niels Arden Oplev is finally catching up to his “Tattoo” star. The director of the original “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, will reunite with his “Tattoo” starlet Noomi Rapace on a new movie, the director’s Hollywood debut, called “Dead Man Down”.
The $30 million dollar budgeted action thriller, currently being shopped around the American Film Market, will star Rapace and Colin Farrell, who will be playing Victor, right hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City who is seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution. Their intense chemistry leads them spiraling into payback delivered in violent catharsis.
Oplev is expected to start shooting “Dead Man Down” (“a powerful action thriller and portrait of two people caught in the crosshairs of revenge”) from a script by J.H. Wyman, by early 2012.
Neal H. Moritz will produce.
