David Fincher Interested In Directing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

New York Magazine reported this Friday that David Fincher considers bringing Stieg Larsson's thriller to the screen. Scott Rudin producing at Sony and acclaimed screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, American Gangster) adapting the novel for the screen once again, since a Swedish movie adaptation of the novel was just released.

"The novel follows a journalist, hired to document the Vagner family history but secretly searching for answers to the mysterious disappearance of Harriet (Vagner’s niece) which occurred 40 years prior. Eventually he teams up with Lisbeth Salander, a genius hacker with Aspergers Syndrome, to solve this mystery." (Collider)

Carey Mulligan (An Education) is rumored as the female lead character, Lisbeth. And if confirmed this film could start a franchise, since the Swedish novelist, shortly before dying, completed a whole trilogy.

  1. As much as I'd hate to see a cut down basterdised American (no offence) remake of the genius Swedish version, if anyone is going to do it justice it will be David Fincher! The Swedish version is actually very Fincheresque in style, in fact it reminded me of 'Seven' in so many ways.

    Of course it's eneviatble that the remake will be trimmed down quite significantly to appeal to a larger audience, I just hope it's not cut back so much that it no longer holds true to the source material.

  5. I really hope Fincher decides to do this movie. He's at his best with thrillers, and he has a way of staying true to the source material, while still putting his own unique spin on it. There is nothing wrong with taking a story from another country and making it 'American'. Look at Vanilla Sky (originally from Spain)and The Departed (Hong kong). A good story with great characters is something that's universal and no one country's audience is better or smarter than another's.
