Daniel Craig ‘tipped for lead role in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’

Posted on: June 5, 2010

‘Quantum of Solace’ star Daniel Craig has reportedly been tipped for the lead role in the Hollywood adaptation of ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’.

According to TheWrap.com, the film is based on the first novel in the Millennium trilogy by the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson, reports the New York Daily News.

It is a crime thriller about a journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, searching for a missing girl with the aid of dragon-tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander.

Adaptations of the three novels, ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’, ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’, and ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest’, have already been made in Larsson’s native Sweden, starring Michael Nyqvist as Blomkvist.

‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ has circulated around the indie circuit for some time in the States.

Brad Pitt was initially reported by various sources to be the top candidate for the Blomkvist role in the English adaptation, which IMDB reports is slated for release in 2012.

But TheWrap.com revealed ‘Dragon’ director David Fincher is more partial to casting the erstwhile 007 as his lead.

Fincher is slated to direct all three adaptations of the trilogy, and he and Craig, 42, are reportedly taking a meeting in Los Angeles within the next few days.
