First Look: David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”


I must admit, I’ve been skeptical about the forthcoming American movie version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” I sucked down Stieg Larsson’s series last summer and thought the Swedish films did a fabulous job translating the books to screen — so what’s the point of another director and cast redoing what has already been done so well? But I might be changing my tune after seeing this just-leaked red band trailer for David Fincher’s American adaptation, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. It looks awesome. I especially love the music — Karen O covering Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.” Hot. Are you psyched for the film or do you think an American version is unnecessary? (FYI, this red band trailer is NSFW.) Keep reading »

Rooney Mara Wins Coveted Role Of Lisbeth Salander In “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

The search for Lisbeth Salander is over. Actress Rooney Mara has allegedly been cast as the heavily pierced and tattooed protagonist in David Fincher’s film adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She will no doubt go on to play the role in two additional films based on the latter two books in the trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. She joins a cast which already included Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard, and Robin Wright, having beat out actresses like Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, and Ellen Page. Keep reading »

Daniel Craig Cast In “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

Daniel Craig has officially been cast as journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the U.S. movie version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” based on the first book in the Stieg Larsson series. I give this casting my stamp of approval, not that they asked. He is just sexy-ugly enough to play the surprising ladies’ man. The character of Lisbeth Salander is still uncast, but after seeing “The Runaways” this weekend, I am praying for one thing and one thing only — please God, not Kristen Stewart. I also watched the Swedish version of “Dragon Tattoo” and was blown away by the performances of both of the lead actors, particularly the woman who plays Lisbeth, Noomi Rapace. I wish she could speak English and play Lisbeth in the American film too — and then win the Oscar. She’s that good. [L.A. Times] Keep reading »
