Natalie Portman, Evan Rachel Wood rumors swirl again for ‘Dragon Tattoo’

HollywoodNews.com: As the clock clicks down toward the fall production start date for David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” cinephiles around the world await the news as to who will play antisocial hacker Lisbeth Salander.

EW offers up some interesting news lately, indicating that there’s buzz that Fincher may be considering a more established actress for the role vs. his previous m.o. which was to cast an unknown. The site’s inside sources indicate Natalie Portman, who was offered the role and passed, may be back in the mix. Arguably, the last gritty role she played was as a child assassin in Luc Besson’s 1994 action film “The Professional” which launched her career as an actress.

Also, Evan Rachel Wood, who has a track record for dark roles, i.e. “Thirteen” and “True Blood,” might also be a contender.

EW says, “ A second round of screen tests were conducted last week with four fairly unknown actresses who donned complete Lisbeth Salander garb to play the troubled heroine opposite Daniel Craig as Blomkvist. Fincher and Sony, however, have yet to make a decision.”

The paper also adds its insight on the filmmaker’s creative decision toward the role of Lisbeth: “Regardless of experience, Lisbeth Salander isn’t an easy role. Making it more difficult is the filmmaker’s current plan to have all the players speak with Swedish accents, a decision that could potentially prove distracting. Should the accents not be delivered flawlessly, the film’s stars could also be a potential target for ridicule.”
