Yesterday, Noomi has attended the 14th Annual Hollywood Film Awards. Dressed by Alexander McQueen, she was honored with the Spotlight Award for her performance in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. All pictures can be found in the gallery, with more information below the previews, courtesy to Variety.

‘Oh, how my life has changed after those three movies,’ Noomi Rapace says. The petite Swede transformed into a kick-butt heroine during her nine months’ filming of the adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s bestselling trilogy that began with “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and concludes with “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.” As Lisbeth Salander, Rapace has become locally and internationally known. “I’ve done a lot of Swedish films but none like these. I don’t think there’s ever been a level like this for Swedish films before,” she notes. Hollywood has come calling, and Rapace is now filming the “Sherlock Holmes” sequel in London. Which character she plays, she cannot say. “But they have invited me to work with them on the script and to find her. … So actually, this really big movie sometimes feels like a small independent family, searching to do something great together.”

Article courtesy the San Franscisco Chronicle: On the phone, what jumps out about Sweden’s Noomi Rapace, who indelibly portrayed iron-willed woman of few words Lisbeth Salander in the “Millennium Trilogy” films, is her British-inflected English and rapid-fire, energetic speech. “I think she’s a beautiful example of how you can manage to survive and turn yourself from being a victim, being pissed on and treated so badly, how you can turn it into strength and into power,” she says of the much-beloved character. “She doesn’t feel pity for herself. She doesn’t complain. She always finds a way to act instead of being wrapped up in a lot of emotional issues. She’s a survivor and a fighter, and she’s trying every minute to free herself and not accept the destiny that everybody around her, pretty much, has forced her into. I think that’s pretty beautiful.”

20th Century Fox is pushing forward with Ridley Scott’s prequel to Alien, a sci-fi story that takes place 35 years before the original timeline featuring Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. The studio reportedly “flipped” last week over the new draft by Damon Lindelof, one of the creators of ABC’s “Lost,” after he rewrote the script turned in by Jon Spaights. Details have been scarce, usually cobbled together from the crumbs Scott offers to his hungry followers, but a script has definitely been handed in and is now being shown to potential cast members. Which is why we’re suddenly seeing a multitude of casting rumors circling. Natalie Portman is supposedly the studio’s top choice, but she’s on the top of just about everyone’s list at this point. Noomi Rapace, star of the Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, also met with Scott to discuss the lead, as did Gemma Arterton. Even Carey Mulligan’s name has surfaced, which would be a major departure from her previous work. More recently, Bloody-Disgusting reported Anne Hathaway and James Franco were being considered for roles, which makes some logical sense considering their recent connections to the studio. Franco is starring in another Fox reboot, Rise of the Apes, in the works. Hathaway recently worked with other branches of the studio on Fox 2000’s Love and Other Drugs and the animated film Rio.
