"Ruthless crime-lord" and "Terrence Howard" paired together may take some time to sink in for some :)

Yes, Mr Howard has joined the case of the action-thriller Dead Man Down, which already boasts Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace in its starring cast.

Howard's character is named Alphonse Hoyt, and is described as "a charming but brutal crimelord who is accustomed to being feared but is thrown off guard when a mysterious tormenter (Farrell) starts sabotaging his business from within and picks off his men one by one as revenge for the death of his family."

Niels Arden Oplev (who helmed the original Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is directing the film, which will go intor production later this month in Philadelphia.

Howard is currently filming another thirller - House Of Bodies with Queen Latifah.

    Terrance Howard has portrayed more than one bent character in his career.

    "Ruthless crime-lord" and "Terrence Howard" paired together may take some time to sink in for some" ...Huh?

    If it's one thing Terrence does extremely well is playing a villain. Definitely looking forward to this one

    Well Tambay, we've seen Terrence Hustle & Flow his way to an Oscar nod, and he was ruthless in Idlewild, so hey, ruthless crime-lord Alphonse Hoyt is par for the course. Come to think off it, can't you smell it? Okay look... a rookie cop works with a rogue detective who isn't what he appears. Okay, change a few names, and job titles, and BAM, Ethan Hawke = Colin Farrell, and Denzell = Terrence! BINGO... it sunk in, Training Day 2012. The white guy jacks the big bad black man. OSCAR TIME for Dead Man Down.
