Wright, 44, who is currently filming Moneyball with Brad Pitt, is in talks to play Erika Berger, the editor of leading finance magazine, Millennium – and lover of Craig’s character, Mikael Blomkvist, reports Deadline.com.
The film, which is based off the novel by Stieg Larsson, is still in need of a leading lady to play Lisbeth Salander, the socially awkward computer hacker with piercings and a photographic memory. Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara have been mentioned as possible choices.
Berger’s storyline plays out through the trilogy, and Wright is negotiating a deal that includes options for the other films. Tell us what you think:
