The Alexander star's publicist Dancia Smith said Web site dirtycolin.com had violated a court order blocking the release of the footage--which allegedly shows the movie hunk engaging in sex acts with former Playboy model Nicole Narain during their 2003 romance.
On the actor's behalf Smith says, "A Web site attempting to distribute an unauthorised tape of Colin Farrell was shut down today. Mr. Farrell will take legal action against anyone who tries to distribute this tape."
Last year Farrell took Narain to court, accusing her of attempting to distribute the tape. He argued its release would harm his career, and he had never intended it for public consumption.
A Superior Court judge issued a temporary restraining order to prevent marketing of the tape in August.
