After many weeks of speculation, Fincher has finally made his choice. He probably had to argue with Sony for approval on this unexpected choice. The Social Network and young actress gets quite a promotion for being the potential star of the upcoming Sweedish trilogy.
Another intriguing decision is to have the cast speak with Sweedish accent. Humm... Sounds risky and potentially ridiculous if badly executed. But Fincher loves challenges, so let's give him credit for that until we hear of something.
Fincher will start shooting next month in Sweden. That will make the director available for a Euro promotion of TSN (as far as promotion goes for Fincher...), and who knows maybe he'll pay a visit to the upcoming BFI Film Festival in London this October, where his pal Mark Romanek will premiere his new movie. Count on us to keep you informed.
Worldwide release is still set for December 21, 2011.
So what do you think about the cast? Bold choice? Bad decision?
