Farrell, Rapace Team For “Dead Man”

Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace are set to team for the action thriller “Dead Man Down” for IM Global and Original Film.

Farrell plays 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. J.H. Wyman penned the script and will produce with Neal H. Moritz.

Niels Arden Oplev (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) will direct the $30 million project which begins shooting early next year.
