WELL, IT'S NOT TITLED THE HANDSOME REPORTER WHO SAVES THE DAY: So, there are reports that The Girl Who Played With Fire may get made with an interesting twist--writing out Mikael Blomkvist because Daniel Craig wants more money--though David Fincher and Rooney Mara would return. From a creative standpoint, I don't mind so much--Salander is a far more interesting character than Blomkvist, who becomes a more and more blatant Mary Sue figure as the trilogy goes on, and the second book in particular focuses on her. It's an interesting career call for Craig, on the other hand, for whom Dragon Tattoo has been the only real commercial success other than Bond. Do we care? Does a Craig-free, but Fincher-directed version of this excite you?
