Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace unite for revenge thriller

Colin Farrell in In Bruges

Story by Jack Foley

COLIN Farrell and Noomi Rapace will star in new revenge thriller Dead Man Down, to be directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the filmmaker behind the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

The Mob drama is described as a revenge tale that follows a mobster’s hitman (Farrell) who falls for a disfigured former beauty (Rapace) and subsequently goes on a violent spree.

Rapace was, of course, the original girl with the dragon tattoo, so Dead Man Down marks a reunion with Oplev.

She can next be seen in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows this December and in next summer’s Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic Prometheus.

Farrell, meanwhile, next stars in the forthcoming Total Recall remake and is reuniting with his In Bruges director Martin McDonagh for the thriller Seven Psychopaths.
