The other millennium girl

When I first heard about Hollywood-remake of Swedish Millennium trilogy based on Stieg Larsson's illustrious books, I was shocked. No way in hell it can work! Well, Daniel Craig could do... but who could replace Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander? She was amazing in the challenging role in the original trilogy. I'm happy no one of the big name actresses who were throwing themselves to the arms of director David Fincher made it. Too much ego in the play. And how much ego you can throw in to play an introvert, tattooed, bi-sexual goth computer genius. Yea, you could throw in so much ego it would be only embarrassing for everyone. So the role went to a relatively unknown Rooney Mara. Seeing the preview shots, she ain't looking too shabby in Lisbeth's get-and-go. I even put my pens on paper and re-created the previews in my style. Hoping for the best, now my doubts linger in Hollywood school of making a thriller...
