Robin Wright and Stellan Skarsgard are in talks to join the cast of the Yankee “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” remake.

The film, starring Daniel Craig and directed by David Fincher, is the first in a trilogy of films based on the Swedish success story.

Here’s who Deadline says Wright (“Moneyball”, “Forrest Gump”) is playing :

She is in talks to play Erika Berger, the publisher of crusading finance magazine Millennium, and the occasional lover of journalist Mikael Blomkvist (to be played by Daniel Craig). The film is casting up quickly, even as Fincher and producer Scott Rudin take their time searching for the right young actress to play the computer hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander. Berger figures in Larsson’s sequel books The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, and Wright is negotiating a deal that includes options for both.

As for the always-dependable Skarsgard, known for his roles in “Good Will Hunting” and “Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead Man’s Chest”, Variety says :

Skarsgard would play Martin Vanger, a suspect in the 40-year-old disappearance of a teenage girl. In the Swedish film, the part was played by Peter Haber.

It was reported earlier this week that Steve Zaillian, who penned “Dragon Tattoo”, is already working on the sequel.Quite confident are we Columbia?
