A couple weeks ago we posted some photos from the set of David Fincher’s English language adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The original Swedish version starred Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist in the lead roles, and in Fincher’s take their characters will be played by Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. Check out the first photos of Craig on the film’s set below…
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo centers on a middle-aged journalist who joins forces with a private investigator named Lisbeth Salander to solve a missing persons case that’s been open for decades. Daniel Craig plays the journalist, who’ll work alongside Mara as the young investigator. The cast also includes Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, and David Dencik.
On an interesting side note, Dencik appeared in the original adaptation of the books in the role of Janne Dahlman, and thus far he’s the first actor to tackle roles in both the English and Swedish films.
Even though Craig is supposed to be playing a rundown journalist looking for the truth, he manages to still look great. What do you think?
What do you think of Craig’s incarnation of the journalist character?
