David Fincher has got the ladies lining up. His English-version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is gearing up for a December 21st, 2011 release date without any of its casting in place yet. Daniel Craig is up for the lead, but scheduling conflicts may have him running around dressed like a cowboy for Jon Favreau longer than anticipated. The story everyone is wondering about, however, is who will snag the role of Lisbeth Salander?
Emily Browning, Rooney Mara, Sophie Lowe, and Sara Snook have been added to the expanding list of actresses up for the part. Speculation is heavy, however, that Fincher will cast an unknown for the role. Die Antwoord singer Yo-Landi Vi$$er has also been buzzed about for the role. For reference, here is a picture of what Vi$$er looks like… on purpose.
I don't know. I like the idea of using an unknown, but Yo-Landi looks like she was designed by Guillermo del Toro. They should go with an actress who won't give the audience nightmares. (Variety)
