The Daily Blam have released character shots and biographies of the main cast of David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which is due for release in the UK in December 2011. The first in Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium Trilogy”, Fincher is re-imagining the story this year for an English speaking audience after the release of 2009’s Swedish adaptation directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle (Christopher Plummer) continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate.
He is aided by the pierced and tattooed computer prodigy Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.
What do you think of the character shots, below I have included Blomkvist and Salander, but click the above link to check out the rest of the cast. It’s nice to be able to walk into a film already knowing a little background about the characters, especially as there are so many in this story and most of them are related. For those who have read the books and seen the original films (myself included), I am looking forward to seeing how Fincher has, hopefully, managed to make the story evolve into something new.
