Stellan Skarsgard to join Daniel Criag in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The casting announcements will start trickling in over the next month as David Fincher prepares to start work on his English language remake of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Today we learn that Stellan Skarsgard has joined the cast as Martin Vanger, who’s one of the men accused of the murder that Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander are investigating. It’s great to get an update on the casting for the film, but let’s be honest here; we just really, really want to know who’s playing Lisbeth Salander. I’m still holding out hope that Noomi Rapace will reprise her role, but the longer we go, the more I think that won’t happen. Rumors have been swirling and it seems like every actress in Hollywood is begging for the part.
The other question I have is whether they’re going to make Daniel Craig speak in a Swedish accent. That may seem like a dumb question, but given the fact they’re filming it in Stockholm and they’re sticking to the novel, they’re going to have to explain Craig’s English accent or make him change it.
