The original Millenium trilogy created by Steig Larsson has been an worldwide sucess even though movie 2 and 3 haven’t been released here in the uk yet. With only 4 weeks until movie 2 The Girl Who Played with Fire comes out (AUGUST 27TH) alot of the talk is centring around the first movie The Girl With Dragon Tattoo‘s hollywood remake by David Fincher.
When things got confirmed with Fincher directing the rumour mill directed itself towards who will play the movies 2 main protaginists Elisabeth Salander and Mikael Bloomkvist with Carey Mulligan, some unknown female rapper and Daniel Craig have been rumoured for those parts even Noomi Rapace the original Salander has even been rumoured.
The Wrap had a interview with Sony’s co-chairperson Amy Pascal tryying to get a feel of the tone as well as story of the American version who has revealed there hopeful for a “very R-rated” (18) version with the hope that David Fincher will be onboard for all 3 movies.
SlashFilm attempted to scour the detailed interview to pick out some of the best parts, finding this little tasty morsel:
“We’re going to really do this, in all their glory. Otherwise why do it? They’re very R-rated movies. It’s the shock of what’s really going on underneath the surface of society. If you don’t actually make good on that, you haven’t told the story.”
“I’m hoping he will. And he’s hoping he will.”
“Well, I’m going to try to get these movies out as fast as possible. But, you know, we’ll have the first one next Christmas. And hopefully, the next two as quick as I can get them. We’re trying to figure that out now.”
I attempted to see the first movie during the glasgow film festival then when the movie came out during its main release trying to find a cinema in glasgow area which was actually showning (even though they promoted it) was like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but what I learned from reviews it did get a very reasonable positive reviews. So if Fincher is left to his own devices with a free reign at making this a dark, gritty, violent version which still respectful to the books we could have another se7en style of movie on our hands and if thats the case I’m up for that!!!
