Home Books Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Could Be French Starlet

The casting is on for the ingenue to star in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

Yes. every young actress wants to play Lisbeth Salander in Stieg Larsson‘s trilogy. The British press has already suggested Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan and a lot of new, now usual, suspects.

Alas, I am told that there’s a new girl in the pack, and once her screen test is done, she may be in the lead. That would Lea Seydoux. The oung actress is like royalty in France, too, where her family is famous: her grandfather was the chairman of Pathe Studios and her uncle was the head of Gaumont.

Lea has already made her impact in  movies. She’s in the opening scene of “Inglourious Basterds,” one of the girls on the French farm. And she the “French pastry”–aka Elinor of Aquitaine–whom King John (Oscar Isaac) bedded early on in “Robin Hood.” My friend Baz Bamigboye of the Daily Mail in London noted last May that Lea Seydoux would be the next breakout international star.

All those American and British stars had better start worrying. I am told that the movie’s producers are enthused about Lea. And it’s not hard to see why!

PS So far Daniel Craig is on track to play the male lead character, Mikael Blomkist.

  1. Getting a tattoo is a significant decision. A tattoo is a permanent physique decoration so particular care must be observed to look the fitting tattoo shop and tattoo artist. The current breed of tattoo artists is skilled, trained and really skilled. Nonetheless, not all professional tattoo artists are good. They still need to satisfy many requirements before you choose one.

  2. My group is incredibly thrilled to have found your blog we appear to have been looking all day long for this information and facts concerning carey mulligan. It isn’t every day you will find this level of quality of knowledge over the internet I can’t thank you enough.

  3. I’m going to be adding this website to my RSS . I discovered this website from a link on StumbleUpon. Interesting subject. I’ll save this site and return again. I am not sure I agree with or understand everything here but it’s very interesting regardless. good comments are being made.

  4. Some buddies and I were just talking about this the other week. I agree with what the article is saying. Although I’m not 100% clear on all the points but it is a good read anyway. I think the the content of the post is well thought out and quite simple to follow. Thank you.

  5. I have a feeling Seydoux will get the role. They clearly want a relatively unknown actress for the part, She has many connections within the film industry that spans worldwide. Furthermore, she has appeared in several high profile films such as “Inglorious Basterds” and “Robing Hood”. So she has just the amount of acting experience that they are looking for.

    I really think that she is going to get the role. I hope that some of the other actresses who are being considered, have a fair chance. But it looks like they already have their mind set on Seydoux.

  6. [...] Three Australians, one New Yorker and one French woman have seemingly emerged as the rumoured final candidates to play Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's upcoming Hollywood adaptation of the bestselling "The Girl with Dragon Tattoo" reports IndieWire and Showbiz 411. [...]

  7. If Daniel Craig IS signed, then it’ll only be because Brad Pitt turned it down. Sony all but handed Pitt TGWTDT on a platter. They probably wanted to lock him down for all 3 movies and Pitt doesn’t want to get tied down with that kind of franchise commitment at this point in his life. There are not many actors who would turn down a sure-thing franchise – but leave it to Brad Pitt to be one of them. Aside from the Oceans trilogy, which was mainly about hanging out with his buddies in the guise of making a film – franchises just aren’t Pitt’s thing.

What do you think?
