‘Dragon Tattoo’ thesp Noomi Rapace to sleuth in ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’
HollywoodNews.com: While Hollywood took its time deciding who should play the role of Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” a role perfected by Noomi Rapace, the Swedish actress has wasted no time in choosing her stateside roles.
Word comes from Heat Vision, Collider and a number of other sites that Rapace will make her English-language debut in “Sherlock Holmes 2.” Rapace will play a French Gypsy and beyond that, the entire plot is being kept secret by Warner Bros.
Collider reports: “It is known that Holmes’ arch nemesis, Moriarty, will have a presence, with Daniel Day-Lewis, Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, and Gary Oldman rumored for the role. Sherlock’s brother Mycroft will likewise make an appearance.” Also Rachel McAdams is suppose to make a cameo as Sherlock’s old flame Irene Adler.
Rapace was also rumored to take meetings for parts in “Mission: Impossible 4,” James McTiegue’s period thriller “The Raven” and McG’s “This Means War.”
Jeremy Renner has exclaimed that Rapace is his co-star in “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Meanwhile, award consultants are shepherding Rapace in the best actress category this season for “Dragon Tattoo.”
