At Next Limit we are not developing any noise reduction filter now, but the ones you all have mentioned are really good solutions.
An important point: keep in mind that often the noise is coming more from certain sources than from others (an specially unaccessible lamp, or so), so filtering the whole image would end in an unnecessarily blurred image.
So, our recommendation is to launch MultiLight, open the image in Photoshop and treat each light separately. You will find that there will be lights where you don't need to apply any noise reduction, and focus on other more noisy ones, keeping the filtering less noticeable in the final image.
In addition to that, you can check the R, G, and B channels separately, and treat them individually. More often, the noisy appears in the Blue channel more than in the others.
Let me know if this helps.
