Who Will Play Lisbeth Salander Next? Top Choices Are...

Now that we know Rooney Mara will not be reprising her role as Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming movie The Girl in the Spider’s Web, everyone is wondering who will take on the iconic character next!

There are reportedly three names already in consideration for the part: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Alicia Vikander, according to EW.

Another role that will need to be recast is investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who was played by Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

A “global search” is underway to find the actress to play Lisbeth!

    I thought they’re recasting the role because of budget issues, but replacing Rooney for an actress that will probably get paid more than her is a joke. She was amazing in the first movie.

    That sucks. Rooney was great in that role. And from the Sony email leaks, you could tell she really loved that character and looked forward to doing the sequel.

    Vikander was apparantly offered the part, but declined.
    If we can’t have Mara or Rapace, then I would prefer someone “new”. Someone who is not known at all
