Posted Friday May 4, 2012 1:25 AM GMT

Hard at work on his latest film, Colin Farrell has been busily shooting scenes for "Dead Man Down" in Philadelphia, PA this week.

Tapping his hardcore demeanor, the 35-year-old Irish actor pulled on a beanie and dressed in all black while lugging around a massive gun to film a few sniper scenes alongside his handgun toting co-star, Dominic Cooper.

In the action caper, Colin plays a character named Victor, who's a New York mobster seeking revenge on kingpin Alphonse Hoyt (played by Terrence Howard) after losing his family.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, "Dead Man Down" also stars Noomi Rapace while slatted to hit theaters next year.
