Stellan Skarsgard Considers Role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

griltatoo23.jpgActor Stellan Skarsgard is negotiating with Columbia Pictures to join the cast of David Fincher‘s adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The Swedish native is eying the role of Martin Vanger, one member of a troubled family haunted for 40 years by the disappearance of a teenage girl.

Skarsgard told Variety: “I’ve met Fincher; I want to work with him; he wants to work me. I’ve had a concrete offer, and now we are in negotiations. 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.”

In July, we reported that Daniel Craig will star in the film. In addition, we noted that Robin Wright is considering the role of Erika Berger, financial magazine publisher. The complex heroine, Lisbeth Salander has yet to be cast.
