Actor Dominic Cooper has joined the cast of Dead Man Down for IM Global and director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

We reported back in November that Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace will star in this action-thriller about a woman (Noomi Rapace) who enlists the help of a criminal (Colin Farrell) to get revenge on those who murdered her family. Dominic Cooper will play Darcy, Colin Farrell's partner in crime on the street.

Niels Arden Oplev will direct from a screenplay by J.H. Wyman, who is also producing alongside Neal H. Moritz. Ori Marmur and Reid Shane are executive producing.

Production is scheduled to begin later this month.
