The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
casting continues, and the latest name on the quite interesting cast list for the upcoming David Fincher
‘s adaptation is Max von Sydow
Von Sydow is in talks to play the affluent Henrik Vanger, man responsible for enlisting journalist Mikael Blomkvist to investigate the disappearance of his niece decades earlier in a story that goes like this:
“Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family.
He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.
When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.”
Let us remind you that movie already stars Rooney Mara
