Noomi Rapace and Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell stepped out in Hollywood last week for the premiere of his new crime/thriller film Dead Man Down. 

It co-stars Noomi Rapace, best known as the Swedish actress who starred as Lisbeth Salander in the European film adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy.

Dead Man Down, rated R, is fairly violent, and Farrell says that he could be ready for something simpler in the future. “I really do think that the lighter stuff appeals to me more,” he said. “I wouldn’t even mind doing a romantic comedy, but a good one that is smart and witty, and not insulting to the idea of romance.”
