David Fincher (Zodiac) is interested in adapting the novel by Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, into a feature film.  Steve Zaillian (Shindler’s List) will be writing the screenplay and Scott Rudin (Fantastic Mr. Fox) will be producing the picture for Sony.  The novel follows Mikael, a journalist, who is hired to document the Vagner family history but is secretly searching for answers as to the mysterious disappearance of Harriet (Vagner’s niece) which occurred 40 years prior. Eventually he teams up with Lisbeth Salander, a genius hacker with Aspergers Syndrome, to solve this mystery.

According to Vulture a deal is yet to be made official, but there is already talk of Carey Mulligan (An Education) to star in the lead female role of Lisbeth.  The novel is the first in the Millenium trilogy.  What I find most interesting is that the trilogy has already been made into feature films in Sweden which were all released last year.

Hit the jump for the trailer to the first film in this trilogy by Niels Arden Oplev: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    Why do people always have to write…

    “David Fincher (Zodiac)”

    Are you kidding me? Is that the film that he is really known for?

    I think that's his best film. Period.

    Zodiac is a kick-ass film! I love all his films, maybe my fave is Fight Club, but Zodiac is great!

    This is cool news. I've seen the Swedish trilogy of films and honestly (though they get loads of praise here in Scandinavia) I think Fincher could do a hell of a lot better! :)

    so a remake already

    When David Fincher dies some day, the very last film mentioned in his obituary will be Zodiac.

    For good reason. I mean it is fine…above average…. but barely memorable.

    They usually refer to films which are most similar to the topic. Guys Lisbeth Salander has got to be Ellen Page. No was is going to top Noomi Rapace in her portrayal but you've all seen the castration scene in Hard Candy, right? Ellen Page could pull it off and shake off that Juno image.

    Ellen would be perfect.
