Kristen has been battling it out for one of Hollywood’s most coveted roles, Lisbeth Salander, in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo! But Inception starlet, Ellen Page might just snag the role right from under her!

Everybody wants to know: who will land the lead in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? We thought Twilight star Kristen Stewart would land the lead of Lisbeth Salander but it might very well be Inception star, Ellen Page who will walk away with the role! The American version of the film is based on the best selling book by Stieg Larsson and the competition is getting intense! Nikki Finke’s Deadline.com reports that even though Sony Pictures has set a Dec. 21, 2011 release date for the film, the fight for the lead is getting fierce!

Not only is director David Fincher, debating between K-Stew and Ellen, but actresses like Carey Mulligan [An Education], Mia Wasikowska [Alice in Wonderland], Emily Browning [Sucker Punch], Sara Snook [Sleeping Beauty], Rooney Mara [The Social Network], and Sophie Lowe [Blame] are all in the running!

It sounds like there’s some pretty steep competition but it get’s even tougher! Deadline.com says David, who is best known for directing Fight Club, 1999, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 2008, is telling all of the actresses to work on their Swedish accents, now that’s not an easy task!
