Rooney Mara, Fans of film adaptations Swedish Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy “novels were eagerly awaiting the release of director David Fincher’s first book,” The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, “with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Fincher is a good director – is a fact. He was nominated for a DGA award for “The Social Network”, a good indication that he will be nominated for an Oscar. And there is no question that the director of “Se7en” and “Zodiac” is perfectly elegant, dark thrillers.
Fincher and Rooney Mara virtually unknown actress (she appeared in “The Social Network”) who plays the heroine hard edge Larsson, Lisbeth Salander, recently spoke to W Magazine, and Mara on the cover of character, almost unrecognizable “The Social Network, but looking good Salander-ish. Yet some of the revelations in the article are generating lots of buzz.
The article says in part:
The script, which captures the dark tone of the novel (original Swedish title was “Men who hate women”) was written by Oscar winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote “Schindler’s List, and differs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less crowded, Salander is more aggressive and, especially, the ending of the drama-resolution-has been completely changed. It may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved the script Larsson-end is more interesting.
Not sure how this will go. Most fans think of novels Larsson went well with his own material. Whether it is right and just made a film Kick-Ass, or is it another case of Hollywood thinking he knows better than the novelists, remains to be seen.
