Kristen Stewart isn’t the only hot Hollywood starlet who COVETS the lead role in the US movie adaptation of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ — she’s going to have to beat back Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway to get the part!
It’s the hottest role in Hollywood right now: the role of Lisbeth, the smart, sexy hacker-anarchist-operative in the American film version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Kristen Stewart and Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan have been floated as serious contenders for the part. But now, according to Deadline.com’s Nikki Finke, the field just got a whole lot bigger, and the competition got a whole lot fiercer.
Deadline says that Juno star and Oscar nominee Ellen Page wrote “a heartfelt note” to producer Scott Rudin because she wants the role. And now, besides K-Stew, Carey, and Ellen, such A-list talents as Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway, and Scarlett Johansson are after the role.
But there could be a big curve ball ahead: Director David Fincher is “not sure if he wants to go with an actress of any note or go with an unknown,” according to a Deadline source.
