Marjorie Kehe is reporting on The Christian Science Monitor‘s book blog that Daniel Craig has signed to portray Mikael Blomkvist, the male protagonist, in the Hollywood version of Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Meanwhile, the search continues for the film’s Lisbeth Salander. The movie is scheduled for release on December 21, 2011.
After seeing the Swedish films of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, I just wish Hollywood would leave Larsson’s Millennium trilogy alone. The Swedish versions will be hard film acts to follow.
