The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011): Daniel Craig Testing Actresses In Costume


David Fincher and Daniel Craig are still testing lead actress for the pivotal role of Lisbeth Salander in Fincher’s adaption of  Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Actresses auditioning for the role will now audition with Daniel Craig in full Salander regalia and makeup so that David Fincher can make a more informed decision – visually and chemistry-wise with Craig – on who is best to play the part. Lisbeth Salander is “one of the most complex roles to come along for a young actress in a very long time.”

Right now the actresses who are being seriously considered may still include Inception’s Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Sarah Snook (Sleeping Beauty), Rooney Mara (The Social Network), Sophie Lowe (Blame) and now French actress Lea Seydoux. Browning and Wasikowska didn’t make test deals, while Page sent in her own. Fish Tank discovery Katie Jarvis is a late entry but she isn’t testing Sunday.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011), written by Steve Zaillian and produced by Scott Rudin, will be released on December 21, 2011 and will begin production in early fall.
