Carey Mulligan to Star in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo 2010-04-26 10:35:25

Carey Mulligan Could Be the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Carey Mulligan has been keeping her options open in choosing her first post-Oscar nomination project, but it sounds like she's circling her next endeavor. Apparently the up-and-coming actress is close to landing the coveted title role in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She's director David Fincher's favorite contender and would star in all three parts of the trilogy.

Mulligan has admitted to being "obsessed with the books," so it's no surprise that she's had her heart set on the role of Lisbeth Salander, who is described as a "biker chick computer hacker who helps an out-of-luck journalist investigate a long-missing woman." The Swedish version of the best-selling book was recently released overseas, and Kristen Stewart is among the other actresses whose names have been thrown into the ring.

A major movie franchise would be a nice change of pace for Mulligan, who's shined so far in smaller films like An Education and The Greatest. Personally, I'm just happy to see her lining up more roles. Fans of the book — do you think Mulligan is a good choice?
