Dominic Cooper could do with some success, as while he signed up for a lot of movies (quite a few of which he ends up dropping out of), he hasn’t had a massive amount of post-Mamma Mia success. He’ll be hoping that Dead Man Down is a hit, as Variety reports that director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) has cast him in the movie.
Last November Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace attached themselved to star in this action-thriller about a woman (Rapace) who enlists the help of a criminal (Farrell) to get revenge on those who murdered her family. Dominic Cooper will play Darcy, Farrell’s partner in crime on the street.
Niels Arden Oplev will direct from a screenplay by J.H. Wyman, with shooting st to begin later this month.
