The timing of Hanksy’s “Feral Cats” pasters in Freeman’s Alley was certainly impeccable.  One of said felines, Colin Farrell, is on his way to the Lower East Side today and tomorrow. The A-list actor will likely be in the Grand Street environs shooting the new movie, Dead Man Down.

Until now, much of the production on the feature flick had been in Philadelphia, even though the plot focuses on the New York City underworld. Farrell plays Victor, “professional killer and the right-hand man to an underground crime lord in New York City who’s seduced and blackmailed by Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a crime victim seeking retribution.”

According to Deadline, Dead Man Down premieres April 5, 2013. Be sure to email us your photos from the set!
