Daniel Craig To Star In “Dragon”?

Daniel-Craig_212Though Sony says there is no offer on the table, an insider confirmed that the studio has begun talks with Daniel Craig (known to most as James Bond) to star in the Hollywood adaptation in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” the Hollywood adaptation of the first Stieg Larsson “Milennium” novel. It’s not bad casting; Craig would play journalist Mikael Blomkvist. I wasn’t in love with Michael Nyqvist, who plays the role in the Swedish version of the novel currently in theaters. On the other hand, there is absolutely no way that David Fincher, who’s directing the Hollywood version, will find a better Lisbeth Salander — the books’ tough, punky heroine — than Noomi Rapace in the Swedish adaptations. I’d be shocked if Fincher hadn’t approached Kristen Stewart about the assignment. Please God, no!!!
