Noomi Rapace of ‘Dragon Tattoo’ the next Marion Cotillard?
HollywoodNews.com: Forget about all the casting news being generated about the U.S. reboot of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” on the blogsphere.
Noomi Rapace, the actress who originated the role of dark femme Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo” is being groomed for an Oscar.
Deadline and Collider report that the film is eligible as the film was released for a qualifying run in a Los Angeles County theater back in March. Furthermore, “Dragon Tattoo” was made for the big screen, not TV, in its country of origin.
Already Rapace has won the Swedish equal of an Oscar for best actress. To date, “Dragon Tattoo” has made $103 million worldwide.
Rapace’s agents at UTA and managers at Magnolia see the actress as the next Marion Cotillard, the French actress who won the Oscar for “La vie en rose” and went on to star in Hollywood blockbusters like “Public Enemies” and “Inception.”
Already, Rapace is in talks for parts in “Sherlock Holmes 2,” “Mission: Impossible IV,” McG’s “This Means War,” “The Last Voyage of the Demeter” and “The Raven” among many others.
