Noomi Rapace To Re-Team With <i>Dragon Tattoo</i> Director

Noomi Rapace, the original Lisbeth Salander, is re-teaming with her The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev, Deadline reports. Oplev is directing an action-thriller entitled Dead Man Down, which will also star Colin Farrell as the male lead.

Rapace will play a woman who seduces and subsequently blackmails Farrell’s gangster character in a plot to undermine the crime boss he works for. J.H. Wyman, co-showrunner for Fox’s Fringe will write the script and IM Global will finance the film.

Rapace will next appear in December’s Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows as well as next year’s Prometheus. Meanwhile, Farrell is filming the remake of Total Recall, which is slated for release for Aug. 2012.
