Now if we could only find out who will play Lisbeth Salander, we’ll be set to go.

While we don’t know who will star opposite Daniel Craig in David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of the famous novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the cast surrounding Bond is shaping up to be rather impressive.

Joining the recently announced Stellan Skarsgard, Deadline is reporting that Robin Wright has been cast in the role of Mikael Blomkvist’s (Craig) lover in the hotly anticipated film. Her deal does also include options on the next films in the series, THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE and THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS' NEST.

Production Weekly has made it known that it looks like the role of Lisbeth has come down to Emily Browning and Rooney Mara who, that last time we heard, was out of the film as one of the first names attached to the ever-growing list. However, don’t be shocked if Mara hears her name called, as she will be seen in Fincher’s upcoming film, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, later this year.

Personally, while Wright’s casting is really fantastic (I think she’s one of the best actresses working today), the film really hinges on who they pick for what is without a doubt the hottest role in Hollywood. Carey Mulligan is still my perfect/most interesting choice, but if Mara does get the role, I will still sleep rather well at night, particularly knowing that Fincher is behind the film.

What do you think?

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was such a fantastic book. I hope they don’t screw it up trying to remake the movie.
