Robin Wright to join Daniel Craig and Stellan Skarsgard in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It feels weird not putting “Penn” on the end of Robin Wright’s name, but I guess she and Sean Penn are officially divorced, so it wouldn’t be applicable any more. But Ms. Robin Wright looks set to join the cast of David Fincher’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. She will play Erika Berger, the publisher of the magazine that Mikael Blomkvist works at. Daniel Craig, of course, will play Blomkvist and Stellan Skarsgard will play Martin Vanger. The cast is rounding out nicely, but America still wants to know who’s going to play Lisbeth Salander.
I can’t say I’m Robin Wright’s biggest fan, but the role of Erika Berger (at least in the original) was very small, so this casting doesn’t really do anything for or against the film. But like I said, we’re still waiting for Lisbeth, and her casting will determine if this film is successful or not.
