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]
