    Well she looks like Noomi Rapace, but why remake a film from last year? It’s like doing a remake of Up In The Air or District 9. I don’t get it…

    cos you yanks can’t cope with subtitles and/or dubbing…

    anyway… I’m convinced the hat is so they can cut down on makeup costs by her not needing the fake earrings in so much…

    Damn, why does she look anorexic? That’s certainly not how Lisbeth is supposed to look.

    Rhiannan Says:

    Lisbeth Salander is 4 ft. 10 or 11 inches (can’t remember which one) and weighs 90 pounds. I trust this girl is short as well? Some twig 5’6″ would not fit the bill.

    A razor blade necklace prop for the slow-witted. Subtlety is lost on American film makers.

    I hope that they include more Americans in the cast. It would be good if they also cast some of Hollywood’s other most famous Swedish stars such as Malin Åkerman, Dolph Lundgren and Lena Olin.

    There really is no point in this film. I don’t like calling film adaptations remakes (that is if the directing is adapting the book, not remaking the film), though.

    I suppose the word “anorexic” appears about 100 times in the book, always describing Lisbeth. LOL

    Elise Says:

    I really don’t get why they are remaking this. And definitely not why they are filming in Sweden.. With American actors who are, what, gonna preted that they’re Swedish people living in Stockholm, but speak English..? Would be better if shooting was done in the US, and they only based this new movie on the original. But now it’s like they want it to be exactly like the original one, only with 007 in the lead..

    Is Daniel Craig American? I agree there’s no need for a remake but this one has already gotten a lot of attention. And so far so good. They seemed to have cast decent actors in the roles.

    Pinkie Says:

    I saw both of the movies in the series and not quite sure why they are remaking it so soon. Reading sub-titles isn’t bad. I can’t see how the American version will be as “real” as the original.

    to 14 Says:

    no he isn’t, neither is Stellan Skarsgård and if they get Max von Sydow the next Swede will join the cast

    to 15 Says:

    I saw all three movies and only the first one was good. The second was a mess and the third one was a bit better. Put away Noomis great performance and you only have a mediocre triology.
    I have great hope that Fincher will do justice to the books and create a real character driven thriller.

    Dee Says:


    Yeah, cause Daniel Craig and Stellan Skarsgard are sooo American! And they’re not doing a remake of the film, they’re doing an adaptation of the books. Because if you read the book (which I loved) and saw the movie (which was great) you would know that they changed quite a few things.

    Anyway, Rooney looks the part and I think this version will do well at the box office not only in the US but internationally too.

    Elise Says:

    Dee: Yeah, I forgot Daniel Craig is British, sorry.. He could’ve been Norwegian like myself for all I care. Main point is I don’t see WHY they are making a new adaption, when the one that’s already made was out last year and did SO well. Why not wait at least a few years?

    Oh, and I did read the books..@

    I loved the books, enjoyed the first film (the second was gone before I got back from vacation waiting for the DVD), and loved loved loved Noomi Rapace in it. Here’s the thing though even Noomi wasn’t the exact description of Lisbeth. Noomi is definitely not 4’10″/4’11″ and she has even said herself that she had to diet for 7 months to get to that “anorexic” looking frame that Lisbeth is described as having.
    I’m not a big fan of studios redoing films that have only recently been done, and clearly there is a trend now of remaking Swedish films… hello “Let The Right One In”, but I am interested in what these actors can bring to the roles.
    In addition I just adore Daniel Craig even before he was Bond.

    The studio bigwigs might want to consider opening up some studios in Sweden though and grabbing these great filmmakers first rather than looking stupid and just re-imagining other people’s work.

    ah, when i look for “daniel craig” now, am I gonna get Mara? jj–are you gonna look for Dan?

    Methinks Mara’s cycle practices are going to get much more private…and people, we don’t need a “Snookie” to play Lis, we need a great actress—and she was chosen. Interesting, will Dan be made “the lead” in this version, because everything else about this series leads me to ba-leeve Lis is the main character. AND–has the third movie been distributed? where am i? who is that? are those MY feet? (will you go see the 2nd one Mendel? I think i missed all venues and have to wait to rent on Netflicks. ~you make it here yet?

    Re: hmmm @ 09/07/2010 at 3:10 pm “is starving oneself part of the contract? her face looks so gaunt.”

    Probably is. In the books Lisbeth is described as looking anorexic numerous times.

    i saw the first two films; you’re right the second one is a mess. but i was told to stay away for the third film.

    It’s unfortunate a foreign film has to be remade because most Americans refuse to read subtitles. These films were so incredible that I’m convinced anyone would enjoy them if they love a great story! I felt the were wonderful adaptations of the books, and how often can you say that? With that said, I have been following the casting news and I’m happy that Fincher cast a relative unknown as Lisbeth Salander instead of one of the well-known actresses that were rumored to play the part. While the benchmark for Lisbeth Salander will always been Noomi Rapace in my eyes, I’m rooting for Rooney Mara and hoping she can pull it off. I do like Daniel Craig and Robin Wright in the roles of Mikael Bloomkvist and Erika Berger. They’ll be fun to watch together!

    Mendel Says:

    I like Mara’s look – add the piercings and she’ll look quite like the book Lisbeth.

    Hi Guinness,

    fancy you meeting here! ;)

    “jj–are you gonna look for Dan?”

    Yes, JJ, do go out and look for Dan. It’s been so long…

    “will Dan be made “the lead” in this version”

    I suspect it will be Lisbeth, although the first book was more about Mikael ( the Lisbeth chapters were the strongest though).
    They have to downplay Dan’s sexyness though, because Mikael is not really overtly attractive in the book (more ‘nice’ than sexy), although he’s got all these women fall at his feet…

    “will you go see the 2nd one Mendel?”

    Yes, hopefully sometime this week.
