While we still don’t know who is going to be cast in the red-hot female lead role in the upcoming David Fincher film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, we do know that Daniel Craig has been added to the cast for the possible trilogy. From Comingsoon:
ComingSoon.net has confirmed that Daniel Craig will star in David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on Stieg Larsson’s posthumously published crime thriller trilogy, “The Millennium Series.” The deal includes two sequels based on The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.
Craig will play a key journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, in the films. As journalists are want to do, he stirs up dirt and generally uncovers of a lot of corruption in the film.
Craig is a fine addition to any cast, so this is just another feather in the cap of the film at this point. I’ll keep you abreast of more news on the project as it makes its way to me.
