It’s alway nice to be proven wrong, I suppose. Looks like there will be an American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo after all. And reasonably soon. Not that I know anything about film making, of course.
They are meant to start filming this autumn, and they’ll do so in Stockholm and surroundings, which at least deals with my doubts of finding somewhere suitable in California. Steve Zaillian looks after the script, with Scott Rudin as producer and David Fincher directing.
The Swedes are very happy, since it means loads of money (hopefully) coming in to pay for local services. I gather the above gents are used to having Brad Pitt around. I’m not a Brad fan, but he does have hair the right colour. George Clooney would not make a good Blomkvist, however handsome he may be.
So, we’ll see what they come up with.
