She may join Will Smith...
Coming Soon reports that Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus, Dead Man Down)is in talks to join Legendary Pictures adaptation of Marcus Sakey's Brilliance, which stars Will Smith. The film will be directed by Julius Onah from a script by David Koepp.
The film follows a world where a small group of people (called "brilliants) are born with powers. This causes problems with the normal humans and starts a civil war. Smith will place a federal agent with powers who has to hunt down a terrorist (who also has powers). Rapace is in talks to play a tattooed and pierced "brilliant" who is accused of being a terrorist. Universal Pictures is hoping for a summer start in production. Joe Roth and Palek Patel will produce with Legendary's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni.
