Noomi Rapace Confirmed For Sherlock Holmes 2

The fabulous Noomi Rapace has officially joined the cast of Sherlock Holmes 2.

Let's hope Guy Ritchie and co. have a better role lined up for her than Rachel McAdams' Irene Adler in the first, in which the charming actress was wasted in an underwritten supporting role.

Heat Vision Blog seem to think that Swedish star Rapace will play a French gypsy in the sequel, which will see Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock and Jude Law's Dr Watson battling their foe Moriarty.

Rapace came to the world's attention as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, with the second film, The Girl Who Played With Fire, in cinemas now. There are also reports that she will co-star with Jeremy Renner in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
