Can I spot a star or what? The radiant and talented Carey Mulligan has signed in to star in all three film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's trilogy starting first with The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo. I reviewed the original Swedish version of the film here last week and overall wasn't wowed, but hopefully the U.S. version will make a few modifications.
It will be interesting seeing the sweet and soft-spoken (I can confirm after meeting her in-person) Mulligan transform into the dark role of Lisabeth Salander who gets tortured, raped and ultimately fights back. Brad Pitt is rumoured to play the male lead role of disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist. One thing I'm sure of in the very least is that the names will probably be changed to Liz and Mike for the American adaptation:p And things aren't looking like they're slowing down any time soon following a star-turning role in An Education last year.
Mulligan will also be appearing in Wall Street 2: Money Never Dies which opens this September alongside Michael Douglas and boyfriend Shia LaBeouf. She's it. (Photo credit: Mr. Will-W.)
