Niels Arden Oplev directed the original Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and he’s following that brutal story with yet another revenge tale starring Noomi Rapace. It’s called Dead Man Down and it also stars Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper and Terrence Howard.
It follows a man (Farell) as he seeks revenge for his wife and daughter. He gets blackmailed by a lady (Rapace) that is also seeking revenge. Together the two must deal with the bloody results that come with seeking down and killing those that have caused harm to you and your loved ones.
It sounds a bit confusing, but the trailer does it justice and then some. I’m looking forward to seeing Rapace re-team with Oplev and I hope that they come up with something as good, if not better than the original Dragon Tattoo film.
Dead Man Down opens on March 8th, 2013.
