Deadline.com seems to have a very special and close relationship with this production, since they are usually the first to break casting news and further status updates. Robin Wright is now rumored to star opposite Daniel Craig as his journalist colleague Erika Berger, a shoulder-to-lean-on and occasional-humping character. Gotta love Robin Wright. She's a great actress and, hey, she's blonde, so she looks perfectly Swedish.
Native Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard was reported to be in negotiations to play Martin Vanger, a suspect in the disappearance of a teenage girl decades earlier -- the central thread to the first movies storyline. Skarsgard told Variety: "I've met Fincher, I want to work with him, he wants to work me. I've had a concrete offer, and now we are in negotiations." Interestingly from Skarsgards further statement one can gather that shooting is scheduled to last from September 2010 to March 2011. And september, as you know, is less than a month away.
"The Social Network" marketing going strong and David Fincher attached to this very high profile new adaptation of the Millenium trilogy should guarantee a lot more Fincher news items in the weeks to come.
