Stellan Skarsgard To Join Tattoo?

| Filed under: Film Flickers


We think he'd be a great choice!

Stellan Skarsgard is in talks to join the US remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

He's slated to play Martin Vanger, one of the suspects involved in the 40-year-old disappearance of a teenage girl.

Skarsgard says:

"I have met (helmer David) Fincher, I want to work with him, he wants to work me. I have had a concrete offer and now we are in negotiations. The contract is for the period September to March, but I don't know yet when I am supposed to start my part of the film.

"Most of it is to be shot in Stockholm, but some studio work will be done in the U.S. I think there might be some location work there as well, when it becomes too dark to shoot here."

Do U want to see Stellan in the remake?

    Why are they even doing a US version of this movie? The Swedish version is killer; I just don't think it can be topped!

    SkarsgÅrd if I may ;)

    I just enjoy teasin' you

    He would be perfect for the part. Since I have already read the trilogy and seen the Swedish version of the movie, I probably have reached my tipping point with this however.

    Man, this movie was just released LAST YEAR! What's the point of remaking it? The movie wasn't that great though, meidocre is more like it.

    Re: CaseyEF – Because we American's always feel like we can do it better. They have also done a remake of Let the Right One In. That and the fact that the majority of the population is too stupid to read subtitles, as they go by to quickly for people to figure out what the big words mean.
    I loved the Swedish version of both and will only see the American version of Tattoo because I just love Daniel Craig who is rumored to be Blomkvist. Although personally I think Skarsgard should play Blomkvist as he's described as middle aged.

    Why does Hollywood always have to ruin perfectly good movies by remaking them?? The original, REAL "Girl with the Dragon Tatto" is fucking awesome. It should never be remade. It's a kickass movie with a kickass cast. LEARN READ SUBTITLES AMERICA!!!!!! (just like "let the right one in" being remade in America as "let me in" - bullshit!)

    i see him more as blomkvist

    Sure, why not? He's Swedish and is the right age. He's also a good actor, so it's all good. I doub't they'll be able to make this movie better than or as good as the original, but they can sure try.

    He'd be perfect! I can absolutely picture him as one of the Vanger family. Hope it works out.

    the original is so great, I can't imagine an American version. But, I'm not surprised. Oh well, more money for the family of the writer…

  11. 11

    I don't want to see as remake AT ALL. They cannot top the original Swedish movies. I think the movie will flop HARD.

  12. 12

    I want to see him playing Blomkvist (cannot spell!) so he would be in all 3 movies - yum!!! He's who I think of when I am reading the books ;)

  13. 13

    yeah definitely he needs to be in the movie but he would be better as blomkvist!!!

  14. 14

    Don't want and Hollywood version in the first place but since they just think about their own wallet they will make it anyway.
    Stella would be a really good choice. And I think that they should have more Swedish blood in it. The best thing that can happen now is if Noomi decides to do Lisbeth again. She is the only one that can do her THAT good, she have raised the bar REALLY REALLY high.

  15. 15

    Stellan Skarsgard should be in everything. Period. He's hot and a great actor, so, what would be bad thing about it?

  16. uyeah says – reply to this


    I'll watch anything with him in it. He's hotter than his son even.

  17. 17

    I really pictured Liam Nesson as Blomkvist. Although I do not think this remake is necessary cause no one can do Lisbeth Salander like Noomi not even a great actress like Carrie Mulligan.

  18. 18

    Wasn't Daniel Craig suposed to be Mikael Blomkvist?

  19. 19

    are americans too stupid to read subtitles or something?
