Controversial. Intense. Fabulous.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo books and Swedish film have exploded through pop culture and the stars of the American version will try to deliver the same success.

Daniel Craig and rising star Rooney Mara landed the cover of Entertainment Weekly and director David Fincher made sure the new Lisbeth Salander was ready for what's in store.

Mara recounts her conversation with Fincher:

There were certainly things I was scared to do, but I never thought I wasn’t up for the challenge…the ­motorcycle was the thing I ­really didn’t want to do. You know, you’re ­going to be raped, be naked… But as soon as he was like, ‘You’re going to have to ride a motorcycle,’ I was like, ‘Oh, really?’

Luckily for Rooney, her director is not shy towards controversy, having directed the racy Fight Club. Fans of Stieg Larsson's books will be keeping a hawk like eye on the American series, making sure nothing is left out and Fincher welcomes the challenge.

"We intend to earn our R [rating]. If you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about.”

    the actress looks like Johnny Weir in drag



  2. 2

    Exploitive trash.



  3. 3

    ugh, how gross, an old man touching a young girls boob, isn't that pedophilia?



  4. 4

    Re: ElleFromVan – Okay pedophilia requires her to be a child, and she is 26 years old! Seriously that's not even close to pedophilia



  5. 5

    Yes but will the American version have her getting raped in the ass and then later getting revenge by raping her rapist with a dildo?? Kinda doubt it!



  6. 6

    Oh and @ElleFromVan: Are you a fucking idiot? Pedophilia involves PRE-ADOLECENT children not adults, regardless of age different. Not even with Whats-his-name and Courtney Sodden are doing is pedophilia, that is called Peder-ism… sexual interest in teenagers by adults. People like you who can't get this shit straight should shut the fuck up.

    Re: ElleFromVan – If you read the books, you would know that the age gap between Lisbeth and Mikael is fully intentional and is addressed throughout the series. :x Besides, did you honestly expect much of anything from David Fincher to be tame and 'socially acceptable?'

    Re: lastonestanding – REALLY????? THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR EXPLAINING THAT TO ME! Holy shit ever heard of sarcasm? Take the bug out of your ass. *eyes rolling* Oh, that means sarcasm too, in case you didn't catch that either.
