Robin Wright, Stellan Skarsgard to Star in ‘Dragon Tattoo’?
After finalizing her divorce from Sean Penn, Robin Wright might be hooking up with Daniel Craig next. At least on the big screen.
According to reports, Wright is in talks to star in the upcoming movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher’s highly anticipated remake of the 2009 Swedish thriller. Wright would play Erika Berger, publisher of finance magazine Millennium and love interest to journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who will be played by James Bond hunk Daniel Craig.
Also in contention for a part in the film: Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard who, in addition to being an accomplished thesp in his own right, is also the father of True Blood stud Alexander Skarsgard. Skarsgard would play Martin Vanger, a prime suspect in the 40-year-old disappearance of a teenage girl.
Producers are still on the hunt for an actress to play kick-ass hacker Lisbeth Salander. While a number of high-profile actresses—including Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Anne Hathaway and Natalie Portman—have been mentioned in connection with the role, producers are reportedly currently leaning toward an unknown to fill the part.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is scheduled for a December 21, 2011 release. In the meantime, let us know what you think about these casting possibilities in the comments section. And check out the trailer for the original Dragon Tattoo film below:
