Dominic Cooper to be Dead Man Down?

April 4th, 2012

Dominic Cooper is set to star in thriller 'Dead Man Down'.

The 'My Week with Marilyn' actor would star with Noomi Rapace and Colin Farrell in the Niels Arden Oplev-directed movie if negotiations are completed.

The movie tells the tale of a grieving husband (Farrell) who infiltrates a gang responsible for the deaths of those close to him and the disappearance of a young woman (Rapace).

Dominic - who rose to fame on movies including 'Mamma Mia!' and 'Tamara Drewe' - will play a friend of Farrell's character called Darcy.

Neal Moritz is on-board to produce the project, and shooting is set to begin in May.

British star Dominic has a number of projects coming up this year, including 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' - where he plays Henry Sturgess - and he recently completed filming on 'Summer in February'.

He is also due to star in 'Cities' - a thriller set in London, Mumbai and New York - alongside Kirsten Dunst, Orlando Bloom and Anil Kapoor.
