Noomi Rapace up for roles in SHERLOCK HOLMES 2 and M:I 4?

This news definitely beats taking talks with directors like Brett Ratner and McG.

Just a day after news came out reporting that original THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO star, Noomi Rapace, met with the two aforementioned hacks, as well as director Ridley Scott, Deadline is reporting that the actress will be talking with a few, much more talented, filmmakers about some pretty huge Hollywood projects.

The actress, who I think gave one of the best lead female performances of the year (although I’m not the biggest fan of the film as a whole) in DRAGON TATTOO, will be talking with Brad Bird and Guy Ritchie for possible roles in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 4 and SHERLOCK HOLMES 2. 

While I still think she’s a perfect Ripley for Scott’s ALIEN prequels, this sure as hell bodes well for the gifted up-and-coming thespian. She definitely has an interesting look, and if DRAGON TATTOO is to be believed, is more than just a pretty face (read: one hell of an actress). 

What do you think of this news?

    I love that you called Brett Ratner a hack! love love LOVE it because I, for one, think he should be blacklisted from Hollywood (just my own humble opinion). In fact, when I see the name, I tend to spit fire. Too much? Too soon? I don’t care.

    Aside from that – your observation of Rapace being a good Ripley is dead on! I’m also excited to see her in more, myself. Guy Ritchie will use her properly, I have faith. I think she was completely overlooked for her DRAGON TATTOOedness (I have not seen the sequel yet), but will rise up and kick certain gals out of the water. At least that’s what I’m hoping. :) Something new and something fresh. Finally!

    I am totally with you on that one. I think that both Ratner is a hack (and I join you in your fire spitting, for damn sure), and that Rapace would be a pitch perfect Ripley. She has a fresh look, one that I think would be perfect for the Alien franchise, and for any film for that matter. She’s also a fantastic actress to boot! Really, this is all around amazing news! :D
