The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake grows
There are two more cast members either aboard or close to signing for the Hollywood remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and they are both rather impressive names. Not only that but one of the big stars tells us a little bit about the film that might have hopes rising for this remake.
Daniel Craig is already on board to play Mikael Blomkvist, the journalist at the centre of the film, and casting is still ongoing for the lead Lisbeth Salander, the female computer hacker, but with David Fincher directing and the latest news below, I think this could be a really good remake.
First news is that Stellan Skarsgård is close to signing for the role of Martin Vanger, a suspect in the forty year old case of the missing girl, and he talked a little about the film, but before we get to that let's have a look at the other name associated with the film, the gorgeous Robin Wright (formerly Robin Wright-Penn, there go all the tag links!).
According to Deadline Hollywood Daily Robin Wright is in discussions to play Erika Berger, the publisher of the magazine Millenium and the lover of the journalist Mikael Blomkvist, played by Daniel Craig.
The story from Variety about the Stellan Skarsgård casting has some more information about the film, he reveals that he's met with David Fincher, had a concrete offer and is negotiating the role, but he also says:
”Most of it is to be shot in Stockholm, but some studio work will be done in the U.S. I think there might be some location work there as well, when it becomes too dark to shoot here.”
Now that's promising isn't it, and actually a little surprising. They are actually going to film the remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in Stockholm, I don't know about you but that sounds like they really are paying attention to the source material.
Add in the calibre of director and potential actors and we could be looking at a really good series of films here, the only worry is how much it will detract from the audiences of original series.
