The Original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Cast in Sherlock Holmes 2

Noomi Rapace, who starred in the Swedish version of the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as Lisabeth Salander, is heading to Hollywood to play the female lead in Sherlock Holmes 2. (Rapace is not to be confused with Rooney Mara, who will soon be Salander in the David Fincher–directed Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.) Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are returning for the Sherlock sequel, with Guy Ritchie directing once again. Rapace's still-unnamed character will mark her first English-language role, and it's rumored to be Downey Jr.'s love interest, so not a bad start. [HR]
