Noomi Rapace Going “Alien”?
Actress Noomi Rapace could be the favorite to land the next big female leading role in Hollywood in the upcoming 3D “Alien” prequel. The project is set up at 20th Century Fox with Ridley Scott directing.
Several actresses recently met with the studio and Scott, Carey Mulligan and Abbie Cornish among them; but it was Rapace that reportedly left the strongest impression. The meeting between Rapace and producers was conducted in the past few weeks but so far no decision has been made on the cast.
Rapace is well known for her role as Lisbeth Salander in the original Swedish version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” More recently Rapace has signed on to appear in the upcoming “Sherlock Holmes” sequel.
