Daniel Craig Inked for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Attention fans of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It has just been announced that Daniel Craig has signed on to play Mikael Blomkvist!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Craig, 42, has signed to play the lead in the American adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling mystery novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, to be released Dec. 21, 2011, and followed by two other movies based on Larsson’s Millennium trilogy.
Filming will take place in Sweden, David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) will direct, and Scott Rudin will produce. So far, no one has been cast in the role of Lisbeth Salander, though Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara have been mentioned. [via People]
There is so much buzz around this movie. I see this book EVERYWHERE I go. Maybe they’ll cast a semi unknown female lead? That might make things a bit easier.
So, do you think Craig is a good fit for the movie?
