David Fincher Eyes Dragon Tattoo
Rooney Mara for Lisbeth Salander
The books are still flying out of the bookstores, and the Swedish film trilogy has just begun its UK release. But lest we forget, Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest, has also caught Hollywood's attention.After some difficult rights negotiations with the still-in-flux Larsson estate, Sony inked a deal for the English-language versions late last year, with Scott Rudin producing and Steve Zaillian having a crack at the first screenplay. And now, according to NY Magazine's Vulture, David Fincher is circling the project. Having delighted the Sony brass with his Facebook founders story The Social Network, it sounds as if Dragon Tattoo is his for the asking.The heroine role of snarky Asperger's hacker genius Lisbeth Salander will be played by Rooney Mara!
Stieg Larsson - who is he?
And who is Lisbeth Salander really?Michael Nykvist a very skilled actor!
Lisbeth Salander played by Noomi Rapace
Noomi Rapace is so extraordinary good in the roll as Lisbet Salander. One US criticer says: Do NOT try to find another actress - "Make her a Swede, and simply cast Noomi Rapace."
Noomi Rapace will play in the next ALIEN movie
Noomi Rapace gets the leading role when Ridley Scott continues the Alien-mythology!Looks like we finally have something cooking on the 'Alien' prequel front (though it's no longer a prequel). Deadline tells us that Noomi Rapace is now locked into the role of Elizabeth Shaw, while Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are circling the film's other major female role, Vickers. Fox claims the other roles will be cast soon.As far as story goes, we still don't know exactly what Ridley Scott has planned. We know that John Spaihts wrote the initial draft, and that Damon Lindelof was then brought in to work with Scott on re-writing that and expanding upon it. Says Lindelof, "In a world flooded with prequels, sequels and reboots, I was incredibly struck by just how original Ridley's vision was for this movie. It's daring, visceral and hopefully, the last thing anyone expects. When I sat in a movie theater as a kid, feet raised off the floor for fear that something might grab my ankles, I never dreamed in my wildest imagination I would one day get to collaborate with the man responsible for it. Working alongside him has been nothing short of a dream come true."
