Rapace to star in Sherlock Holmes 2

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo herself, Noomi Rapace, is set to make her English-language film debut. The Swedish actress has nabbed a high-profile part in Sherlock Holmes 2, as the female lead alongside Robert Downey Jr.

According to Heat Vision, Rapace’s casting is the result of her recent visit to Los Angeles, in which she met with producers and directors to potentially break into Hollywood. Of course, it’s unlikely the talented actress engaged in much arm-twisting. Rapace has picked up numerous acting awards in her homeland, and has received much acclaim for her performance in the Millennium trilogy.

Although the plot of Sherlock Holmes 2 is being kept under wraps, it is known that Holmes will face off against his arch-nemesis Moriarty.

Downey Jr. and Jude Law will reprise the roles of Holmes and Watson respectively, while it is rumoured that Rapace will star as a French gypsy. Guy Ritchie will return to direct.

Sherlock Holmes 2 begins shooting later this year, and is set to debut December 2011.

Discuss: Yes yes, very exciting, but can we please get confirmation that she is also starring in that bonkers-sounding Hansel and Gretel movie?
