The old Lisbeth is the new It
That’s what Entertainment Weekly called Noomi Rapace a couple of weeks ago. And they actually say that’s what everyone in Hollywood is calling her right now. She was in LA for meetings and so many people wanted a piece and she’s working with the same publicist who took Marion Cotillard to an Oscar and they say there’s an outside shot there could be a nomination in Noomi’s future too.
Ultimately though, what they want, what they all want, is more work. And the work is coming for her. She’s already working on Sherlock 2 with Guy Ritchie, RDJ, and Jude Law, and she’s reportedly in talks to become the top bitch in Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated Alien prequel. Apparently Carey Mulligan and Abbie Cornish are being considered too.
I love Carey but if there’s an heir to Ripley is HAS TO BE NOOMI. Make this sh-t happen now.
This is Noomi on Friday at the Black Swan premiere at the London Film Festival. Oh and by the way, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest hits theatres October 29th. Watch the original, the proper version of the series, before you get sucked into the Hollywood one.
