Colin Farrell Seeks Vengeance Through His Rifle's Scope In Set Photos From Niels Arden Oplev's 'Dead Man Down'

While the Swedish 'Dragon Tattoo' films didn't grip us as much as David Fincher's version, the overall success of the films (and, in this case, the first film) has paved the way for the talent involved, director Niels Arden Oplev and actress Noomi Rapace. Now hard at work on an English-language reunion, "Dead Man Down," the duo have managed to get us excitied with a grimey-sounding revenge-actioner that boasts a stellar cast that includes Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard and Isabelle Huppert.

Farrell Dead Man Down

While the Swedish 'Dragon Tattoo' films didn't grip us as much as David Fincher's version, the overall success of the films (and, in this case, the first film) has paved the way for the talent involved, director Niels Arden Oplev and actress Noomi Rapace. Now hard at work on an English-language reunion, "Dead Man Down," the duo have managed to get us excitied with a grimey-sounding revenge-actioner that boasts a stellar cast that includes Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard and Isabelle Huppert.

The story centers on Victor (Farrell), right hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City, who is looking for vengeance for the death of a family member, and is seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution. Their intense chemistry leads them spiraling into payback delivered in violent catharsis. Cooper will play Farrell's buddy on the street while Howard takes on the villain role. No word yet on Huppert's part in the film.

Currently shooting in Philadelphia, we have a couple of early set photos from the production which includes Farrell turning to sniping on his quest for revenge, Cooper looking very Farrell-esque and wearing his pants very low and Howard looking his usual suave self. "Dead Man Down" was penned by J.H. Wyman, and we hope it's as gritty and dark as it sounds.  [JustJared/FarrellFansite/EyePrime]
