David Fincher confirms Sweden as location of his “Dragon Tattoo” remake

By Sean O’Connell Fans of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” novels who fear David Fincher’s remake of the Swedish hit, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” will become too Americanized can breathe a sigh of relief. The “Fight Club” director confirmed that his take on the story will definitely be set in Sweden, as the novels dictate.

“Stockholm. Uppsala. In the north,” Fincher told MTV, who asked him about his plans while attending Comic-Con. “You have to. What, are you going to put it in Seattle?”

Lesser directors might have. But Fincher has always been committed to his own visions, and has a reputation for butting heads with studio executives who do not agree with his personal, creative agenda. Why not trust the man? He has made several masterpieces, and his most recent — “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” — nearly won him a Best Picture Oscar.

Fincher’s “Dragon Tattoo” remake just added Daniel Craig in the role of defamed journalist Mikael Blomkvist. He has yet to cast Blomkvist’s tough-as-nails partner, Lisbeth Salander. The film won’t be in theaters until December 2011. In the meantime, Fincher will throw his weight behind “The Social Network,” which documents to meteoric rise of Facebook. That film opens Oct. 1, 2010.
