Daniel Craig to Star in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Adaptation

Jason Boog of GalleyCat News reports that actor Daniel Craig will star in the David Fincher-directed English language adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

The James Bond actor is will play the hard-nosed journalist, Mikael Blomkvist. The film is set for December 2011 release. A Swedish adaptation of the bestselling novel has already hit box office gold. Last week we linked to a list of the female leads being considered for the adaptation.

Here’s more from the post: “Craig has closed his deal to play journalist Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a deal which factors in options for two sequels based on The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest. The novels comprise the bestselling trilogy by late Stieg Larsson.”
