Report: Scarlett Johansson was original choice to play Lisbeth Salander but was dropped by David Fincher…

“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is on the cover of this month’s “Vogue” magazine, and David Fincher talks about the film in that issue. He said, Scarlett Johansson, was the original choice to play Lisbeth Salander, but she was dropped, and he decided to hire Rooney Mara for the role instead.

David does explain why he dropped Scarlett. He basically said that if he had Scarlett in the movie, everyone will expect her to get naked. Lisbeth was supposed to be like a children’s character (Remember, she was inspired by Pippi Longstocking), so David compared her to, E.T. , to give you an example. He wanted the Lisbeth character to be lovable, like E.T. He felt Scarlett didn’t have that, I guess.  He was impressed with her acting during her audition, though.

Read the full story, here.

I’m sure Scarlett would have done a great job but her boobs are too big. In the book, Lisbeth’s boobs were described as small.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to the “Dragon Tattoo” movie, I will see it in theater and I hope it won’t be disappointing. I’m sure Fincher will do justice with the book.
