Craig signs on for 'Dragon Tattoo'

Daniel Craig has signed up to star in a remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Daniel Craig has a new mission. The current star of the James Bond films has signed on for the English-language remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Distributor Sony Pictures confirmed Craig is taking on the role of journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the thriller based on the first novel in the best-selling series from the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson.

The violent story teams Blomkvist with the title character, Lisbeth Salander, a deeply troubled genius tormented by a terrible childhood, as they delve into the mystery of a missing girl whose disappearance leads them to a string of decades-old murders.

The role of Lisbeth has not yet been cast.

Directed by David Fincher, the film is due in cinemas next year.

You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
