Daniel Craig Joins The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

James Bond who? Daniel Craig is now Mikael Blomkvist.

Deadline Hollywood confirms that Daniel has signed to play the lead in the American adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling mystery novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

So far, no one has been cast in the role of Lisbeth Salander (the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) but we hear Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara are being considered for the role.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first of three movies from the trilogy, and will be released on December 21, 2010.

Filming will take place in Sweden and David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) is on board to direct the adaptation, which Steve Zaillian is writing and Scott Rudin is producing. Mark your calendars ladies, I know I will!
