Daniel Craig confirmed…

July 26, 2010

as Mikael Blomkvist in the English adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”  David Fincher* is set to direct with a tentative release date of December 2011 (Oscars anyone?).  some (Nancy) think that Craig is too pretty for the role, but don’t i remember complaints that he wasn’t handsome enough for the Bond role?  Craig works for me as Blomkvist.

the role of Lisbeth is still undecided.

once the estate is settled for Larsson, will the series, including the partially written 4th book, go the way of Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series which was successfully continued under the helm of Eric Van Lustbader?  i nominate the under-recognized and very talented Nicola Griffith (read the Aud Torvingen books!)  to pick up the pieces.
