David Fincher has got to be feeling pretty good about himself right now. His latest picture, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, just came out of a decent weekend at the box office and has garnered rave reviews across the board. $20 million dollars for a movie about Facebook isn't bad, but when you consider it's easily one of the year's best reviewed movies (along with HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and TOY STORY 3), it's one hell of a success.

Naturally, Fincher has already directed his focus toward his next project- his remake of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. We already know that Rooney Mara, who played Zuckerberg's ex-girlfriend in THE SOCIAL NETWORK, will play Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig will play Blomkvist. We just learned that Christopher Plummer has found a role in the film.

Read on for the full story.

What's most surprising about this film is the fact that Max Von Sydow was originally in talks for the role of Henrik Vanger; however, it would appear that Christopher Plummer has scored the portrayal of the aging millionaire. Though I loved the thought of Max Von Sydow playing Vanger, as his stoic intensity is astonishing, there is little doubt that Plummer can pull this off with the same gravitas he brought to the role of Tolstoy in THE LAST STATION.

We're still awaiting plenty of news regarding this project. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
