David Fincher is already signed on for his next project. It will be a remake of the popular book called the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Skarsgard would play Martin Banger, a suspect in the 40 year old disappearance of a teenage girl.
“I’ve met (helmer David) Fincher; I want to work with him; he wants to work me. I’ve had a concrete offer and now we are in negotiations,” Skarsgard told Daily Variety. “The contract is for the period September to March, but I don’t know yet when I am supposed to start my part of the film.”
This could be taken as a confirmation, but it is not certain for the actor.
“Most of it is to be shot in Stockholm, but some studio work will be done in the U.S. I think there might be some location work there as well, when it becomes too dark to shoot here.”
Daniel Craig has already been signed on to play Michael Blomkvist, the journalist at the center of the story. The female hacker Lisbeth Salander is still to be found.
The script will be written by Steve Zaillian. The film will be a visual treat because of the presence of David Fincher. So it will be exciting to have Skarsgard on board for this film as well.
