Christopher Plummer Joining David Fincher's 'Dragon Tattoo'
With shooting already underway in Sweden, the cast of David Fincher's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake/re-adaptation (of Stieg Larsson's series of novels) continues to grow with more and more fantastic actors. Heat Vision announces that Oscar nominated actor Christopher Plummer has joined the cast as the wealthy industrialist (a key figure in the story) who hires a disgraced journalist (Daniel Craig) to solve a 40-year unsolved murder, but the case uncovers a web of familial corruption. Rooney Mara stars as hacker / punk chic Lisbeth Salander gets involved in the mystery. This cast Fincher has picked is quite impressive.
To me, Christopher Plummer is one of those old timer actors that always brings a smile to my face whenever I see him in almost any film, so it's a delight to see him joining the cast of this. He was one of the best parts of Terry Gilliam's Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, in my humble opinion, and I heard wonderful things about his performance as Tolstoy in The Last Station, although I never saw it. Scott Rudin is producing and Columbia Pictures is developing this re-adaptation with plans to release the first film in December of next year. Shooting is already underway, so expect to see some marketing for this start to kick up early next year. Most of the key roles in the film have been cast, but we'll keep you updated on this anyway. Sound good?

Isn't Max Von Sydow also attached to this in some way? If so, color me excited!

I think his look would make him more suitable for Martin Vanger but oh well. I cant wait to see this. I didnt really enjoy the Swedish original. I have no doubt Fincher will pull off some magic with it. After seeing the Social Network I'm more excited for THIS than I am for Batman 3.
