Noomi Rapace Is 'Simza'



Sneak Peek actress Noomi Rapace ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") as the character 'Madame Simza' in Warners upcoming big screen release "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows", the second Warners feature starring actors Robert Downey Jr. as 'Sherlock Holmes' and Jude Law as 'Dr. Watson':



Directed by Guy Ritchie, "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" is produced by Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin.



The new film is a sequel to the 2009 feature "Sherlock Holmes" based on the character of the same name, created by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.


In the new movie, Holmes and Watson', join forces to outwit 'cunning' adversary, 'Professor Moriarty'...


"...Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.

"When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by 'Inspector Lestrade' (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide.


"But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty.



"Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen's club, where he and his brother, 'Mycroft Holmes' (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters 'Simza' (Noomi Rapace)...



"...a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince's murder makes her the killer's next target. 


"Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him.

"

The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim across the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history."
