Daniel Craig Cast in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

James Bond has a new challenge: Daniel Craig will star in David Fincher’s remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, based on the bestselling novel by Stieg Larsson. Craig will play journalist Mikael Blomkvist, and may reprise the role in sequels based on the other novels in the trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest. Lisbeth Salander, the female lead, has yet to be announced. Craig's filming schedule will be chock full, as he'll commence work on Tattoo on the heels of wrapping Cowboys and Aliens. Throw in the next Bond installment (filming TBD) and you've got one busy Brit.
