MAYBE it will be a good thing. Just look at The Mist! Stephen King said himself he LOVED that new ending!
Whether or not director David Fincher's new ending to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is awesome, there is def going to be controversy over his decision to mess around with writer Stieg Larsson's vision.
Here's what Fincher had to say about the Dragon Tattoo script vs. the novel:
"The script, which captures the novel's bleak tone, was written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote Schindler's List, and it departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending — the resolution of the drama — has been completely changed."
"This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved on Larsson — the script's ending is more interesting."
Hmm….we're thinking hardcore Dragon Tattoo fans will be unhappy with this news, but at least they've got a talented screenwriter on board. It'd be hard to argue TOO MUCH with the guy who wrote Schindler's List.
Guess we'll see how this plays out. We'd imagine even the haters might go see this movie, just to
hate see for themselves.
