Auditions are now underway for the much anticipated Columbia Pictures feature film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Oscar nominated director David Fincher has signed on to helm the movie. Fincher has directed such films as Panic Room, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and the recently completed The Social Network.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is an award-winning crime novel by the late Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson, the first in his “Millennium Trilogy.” At his death in November 2004 he left three unpublished novels that made up the trilogy.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo became a posthumous best-seller and publishing phenomenon in several European countries.
The Swedish film production company Yellow Bird produced a film version of the Millennium Trilogy – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Men Who Hate Women (the film title of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), opened in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland in February-March 2009. So far, it has been seen by more than 2.5 million people in those countries. In Norway and Denmark it is the most viewed Swedish film ever.
Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt are all interested in playing the central role of Mikael Blomkvist. Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and Juno’s Ellen Page have expressed interest to play Lisbeth Salander, as well as Carey Mulligan.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is widely considered the hot project in the entertainment industry right now, especially since there will be two more installments of the Millennium Trilogy by the late Stieg Larsson right behind this film.
Shooting will take place from September, 2010 through March, 2011 in Los Angeles, and exterior filming will take place in Norway in October, 2010. Casting for the film’s lead and supporting roles are taking place in Los Angeles, with smaller featured roles and extras being cast in both Los Angeles and Stockholm.
