David Fincher’s remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has begun

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

Pre-production on David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, has begun. He is currently in Stockholm checking out locations for the shoot. Shooting is due to start filming in October.

According to The Playlist Fincher wants a “European look” for the film and is planning to shoot all the exteriors in Sweden. He is also keeping all the Swedish locations and not moving the story over to the USA which is a bit unusual for a remake.

No word on whether the characters of Lisbeth Salander or Mikael Blomqvist will be changed into being British or American.

No word on any casting and Carey Mulligan who has been rumoured to star in the remake has, so far, denied any involvement.

Do you want a remake of the film considering the original film was out last year (you can see the poster for the original above)? Who should star in it?

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be out in the USA

Posted by LiveFor on October 8, 2009

The-Girl-With-a-Dragon-TattooMusic Box Films has picked up U.S. rights to Swedish hit thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which has grossed almost $100 million internationally according to Dark Horizons.

The $13 million feature, titled “Men Who Hate Women” in its home county and outside western territories, is the first in the “Millennium” trilogy based on Stieg Larsson’s international bestsellers.

The story follows a disgraced journalist and a misunderstood rebellious female hacker investigating the 40-year-old disappearance of a industrialist’s niece on a remote island. Their investigations uncover religious killings, Nazism, rape, child abuse and murder.

The next two books have already been filmed, the second entitled “The Girl Who Played with Fire” having opened a few weeks ago and has already grossed $16 million in just four European territories. The third, “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”, is due for a cinematic release in November in Sweden.

Music Box has slated a North American release in March 2010. If ‘Tattoo’ proves a success in the US, it’s likely the next two films will be picked up and released there throughout next year.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Menn Som Hater Kvinner) Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on December 27, 2008

Once you start The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there’s no turning back. This debut thriller–the first in a trilogy from the late Stieg Larsson–is a serious page-turner rivaling the best of Charlie Huston and Michael Connelly. Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch–and there’s always a catch–is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson’s novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don’t want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo.
