Isabelle Huppert Joins 'Dead Man Down' With Noomi Rapace, Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper & Terrence Howard

There are few actresses who march to the beat of their own drum in the way that Isabelle Huppert does. This year alone finds her in three wildly different movies, from a trio of auteur filmmakers, including Brillante Mendoza's "Captive," which premiered in Berlin and a duo of pics unspooling at the Cannes Film Festival: Michael Haneke's "Amour" and Hong Sang-Soo's "In Another Country." And now, just like that, she's again confounding expectations, taking a role in her first Hollywood project since 2004's David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees" (or if you want to be technical about it, since an appearance on "Law & Order: SVU" in 2010).

Isabelle Huppert

There are few actresses who march to the beat of their own drum in the way that Isabelle Huppert does. This year alone finds her in three wildly different movies, from a trio of auteur filmmakers, including Brillante Mendoza's "Captive," which premiered in Berlin and a duo of pics unspooling at the Cannes Film Festival: Michael Haneke's "Amour" and Hong Sang-Soo's "In Another Country." And now, just like that, she's again confounding expectations, taking a role in her first Hollywood project since 2004's David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees" (or if you want to be technical about it, since an appearance on "Law & Order: SVU" in 2010).

Huppert is joining Noomi Rapace, Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard in "Dead Man Down," with her presence making the movie about a thousand times more interesting. Penned by J.H. Wyman ("The Mexican," "Fringe"), the thriller follows Victor (Farrell), who sabotages the business and picks off the men belonging to underground crime lord Alphonse Hoyt (Howard) in New York City as vengeance for the death of a family member. Along the way, Victor is seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution. Their intense chemistry leads them to deliver to some violent retribution. Unfortunately, no word yet on Huppert's her role.

Filming on the project kicks off this month, with Huppert to shoot her scenes in May. "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" helmer Niels Arden Oplev directs. [Deadline
