The Girl Who Played Bestselling Literary Heroines

By posted at 6:18 am on January 13, 2010 2

coverThe Swedish-language film adaption of Stieg Larsson‘s worldwide bestseller The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo should be out on this side of the pond in the next few months, but Sony has also recently optioned rights for an American version. 

MTV’s blog speculates on American actresses who might get a casting call to try for the role of Larsson’s heroine, Lisbeth Salander. They don’t mention the inevitable Kristen Stewart, but the Telegraph does. Oh, the cognitive dissonance of having Bella Swan play Salander. I’m with MTV: Shannyn Sossamon‘s the girl for the job.

    Haven’t read the book, though it’s on top of my bookcase along with a million other things. But yes, PLEASE, no kirsten stewart. It’s not even the fact that she only thing she can do well is bite her lip and stutter, it’s the fact that from what I’ve heard of Lisbeth Salander, you actually need a girl with spunk and balls, not a propensity for vampires, converse shoes, and thinking she can actually play Joan Jett. Sigh.

    Don’t know if they’ll release it in the US!
