Colin Farrell has been working his way back into the mainstream and will undoubtedly get attention with the reboot of Total Recall and to continue that momentum he’s teaming up with Noomie Rapace in this action thriller.

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.
Seems a tad typical for Farrell but I don’t think I mind that at this point of his career. He was on a serious decline for a while but I tend to enjoy his on-screen performances and don’t mind him doing something that might ensure that we see more of his talent in the future. Not super excited about this one mostly because the premise seems boringly typical but I do think it’ll be a decent opportunity for Farrell to shine.
One thought on “Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace join “Dead Man Down””
What do you think about London Boulevard? Stephen Holding called it a “palpitating mess of a movie”. Farrel’s an ex-con trying to go straight, working as a bodyguard. Where there’s bodyguards, there’s trouble so… it’s supposed to be opening in limited release but I can’t find hide nor hair of it here in L.A.
