Daniel Craig May Play Mikael Blomkvist in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
Sony Pictures are close to signing “James Bond” star Daniel Craig to appear in the film “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo“. According to Deadline.com, Sony has not said officially that there is a deal on the table for Craig, but studio insiders say that Sony is close to adding him to the cast.
Craig would play the role of journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the film adaptation of bestselling “Millennium” trilogy from the late Stieg Larsson. “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is the first book in the series. David Fincher will be directing the film for Sony and is reported to be very interested in having Craig join the cast. The two are expected to meet in Los Angeles this coming week to discuss a deal.
Craig has one project on his schedule right now after it was announced that the next installment of “James Bond” has been suspended indefinitely due to MGM’s financial problems. Craig is about to beginning filming for his role in the DreamWorks’s sci-fi “Cowboys & Aliens“.
