Being a thriller led by Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Dominic Cooper, and Terrence Howard, it’s no surprise Dead Man Down has found a buyer right after shooting commenced. Deadline reports that, in this case, said buyer would happen to be FilmDistrict, who are planning to release Neils Arden Oplev‘s currently-shooting thriller sometime next fall.
J.H. Wyman has scripted Dead Man Down, which follows Victor (Farrell), a former criminal aide who seeks vengeance on Alphonse Hoyt (Terrence Howard) a criminal overlord who helped orchestrate the death of his family. Rapace — re-teaming with her director on Sweden’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — enters the swing of things as Beatrice, a woman blackmailing Victor for his services; Cooper will play Victor’s partner, Darcy.
Update: The first official still of Farrell in the film has been released. See below.
Deadline also informs us that Robert Luketic‘s Paranoia — starring Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, and Harrison Ford — appears to have found distribution through New Regency, thus leaving open the possibility of a 2013 release. (It’s also said that Richard Dreyfuss will probably end up signing for the film; that’s good to hear.)
Update: Relativity will release the film on September 27, 2013.
Based on Joseph Finder‘s novel, Paranoia — an international thriller set in “the world of dueling telecom giants” — revolves around a powerful boss’ blackmailing of a younger employee (Hemsworth) to spy on his corporate rival; Ford and Oldman will play the higher-ups. Shooting is scheduled to get underway during the summer.
