Director David Fincher wants his version of Stieg Larsson’s books to catch Sweden.
– I hope I can find an atmosphere reminiscent of “Chinatown”.
David Fincher is a superstar in Hollywood. He has previously made such as “Seven” and “Fight Club”, and may currently very positive reviews for his film “The social network”, the story of the young men who started up.
It is to talk about the film – which goes up in Sweden on 22 October – as he hits a few journalists.
But since he is currently also engaged in directing the first American film by Stieg Larsson “Millennium” trilogy, he also speaks about it – but says a bit ironic:
– I’ve just started with it. I have not had time to figure out some cliché answers yet to use when I asked about it.
Videotaping has already started, but first this week is production in high gear with filming on the streets around Stockholm.
David Fincher says that it is definitely not about a remake of the Swedish film.
– There is absolutely no reason to do this. Steve Zaillian has written the new screenplay, and he has been based on the book and made their own version. Sure, there are scenes that will resemble them in the Swedish film, but it is the book that we are filming.
He talks a lot about “Swedish Noir”, and says that his movie also atmospherically will differ from the Swedish.
– It was very effectively done in an American way. I’m looking to try to catch Sweden. I hope I can find an atmosphere reminiscent of “Chinatown”.
Roman Polanski directed the noir classic from 1974 with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway in the lead roles.
When the TT spectra ask when shooting starts for real, and when Daniel Craig coming into play in the role of Mikael Blomkvist, Fincher just smiles and does not respond.
Will there be one, or will the three Millennium Films?
David Fincher laughs loudly and says.
– We’ll see. If the first is not good, it’s no use to do more.
However, he with a few new names added to the actress list where we have been told Craig, Rooney Mara, Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright and Christopher Plummer.
– Let’s see. Joely Richardson is with. And Steven Berkoff. And David Dencik.
David Finchers “The girl with the dragon tattoo” will premiere in autumn 2011.
