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.”
