Lea Seydoux the new ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?’

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: The casting is on for the ingenue to star in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

Yes. every young actress wants to play Lisbeth Salander in Stieg Larsson’s trilogy. The British press has already suggested Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan and a lot of new, now usual, suspects.

Alas, I am told that there’s a new girl in the pack, and once her screen test is done, she may be in the lead. That would Lea Seydoux. The young actress is like royalty in France, too, where her family is famous: her grandfather was the chairman of Pathe Studios and her uncle was the head of Gaumont.

Lea has already made her impact in movies. She’s in the opening scene of “Inglourious Basterds,” one of the girls on the French farm.
