The Swedish star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, has been having meetings with some of the top directors in Hollywood about possible future projects.

It's reported that the actress has met with Ridley Scott, McG, Brett Ratner and numerous studios about parts in upcoming projects. According to, the execs and directors thought they were meeting with "a possible female villain," but walked away with her in their thoughts as a lead. Evidently she is nothing like her 'Dragon' part - which is why they call it "acting."

Repace is being sought for a part in Sherlock Holmes 2, while McG wants her for a villain role in This Means War, opposite Tom Hardy and Chris Pine. Ridley Scott just wanted a chat, apparently.
