Looks like Dominic Cooper is trading in one revenge thriller for another. After dropping out of “Motor City”, which will now star Gerard Butler (downgrade!), Cooper is signing on to original Swedish “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” director Niels Arden Oplev’s “Dead Man Down”, joining original Lisbeth Salander Noomi Rapace and Irish star Colin Farrell in the cast. It’s a curious switheroo for Cooper, who apparently gave up the leading role in “Motor City” to play second or third fiddle here. Farrell leads the way as a mobster’s hitmanRead More
Looks like conquering “Motor City” just isn’t enough for Dominc Cooper, who’s setting his sights on something more global, as Variety reports the busy and rising actor has replaced Clive Owen in international thriller “Cities”. The new casting could call into question Cooper’s previous commitment to “Motor City”, the ambitious dialogue-free revenge thriller he was slated to star in opposite Amber Heard. Cooper will join Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and Anil Kapoor in “Cities” for director Roger Donaldson, which will tell “stories of characters around the globe, including a NewRead More
Dominic Cooper‘s career is slowly going from strength to strength. He’s showed his range through supporting roles in a variety of films, from 2008 musical “Mamma Mia” and 2009 Oscar-nominated drama An Education, to box office hit “Captain America: The First Avenger” and this year’s Oscar contender “My Week With Marilyn” and we think 2012 is definitely going to be the year to watch him gain leading man status.

Could the early cancellation of NBC’s “The Playboy Club” have been a blessing in disguise?

Deadline reports Heard has landed the female lead in Warner Bros’ ambitious revenge thriller “Motor City” opoosite leading man Dominic Cooper, after testing for the role against several other young actresses. Cooper will starRead More
British rising star Dominic Cooper – not his “Captain America” co-star Chris Evans – will be headlining Warner Bros’ ambitious revenge thriller “Motor City” for director Albert Hughes, reports Variety. The trade further reports it was Cooper’s revelatory double role as Uday Hussein and Latif Yahia in Sundance hit “The Devil’s Double” that made producer Joel Silver ultimately decide on him. It’s quite a coup for the young actor, after names like Evans, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Renner were previously reported to be in consideration for the part. Cooper willRead More
Now that Chris Evans’ star has risen considerably after the monster success of “Captain America: The First Avenger”, it’s no surprise that producers think he’s ready to capitalize on his fame to get risky projects greenlit by money-conscious studios. TwitchFilm are reporting Evans has been offered the lead role in Warner Bros’ revenge thriller “Motor City”, a 2009 Black List feature length script from Chad St John that features only one line of dialogue. The film will see Evans as a sort of modern day Count of Monte Cristo, aRead More
