Millenium Trilogy

By December 16, 2009Nat-news

Anne Thompson has an interesting article up about a hugely popular trilogy of Swedish crime novels. The books have already been made the leap to film in Sweden (apparently quite successfully) but now producer Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men, The Hours, Truman Show etc etc etc) and writer Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, Hannibal) look likely to put their own spin on the series.

What has this got to do with Natalie? Not much, bar this bit of speculation from Anne.

Blomkvistā€™s sidekick, bisexual tattooed hacker detective Lisbeth Salender, one of the great ass-kicking heroines of modern fiction, is also a tough one to cast. Ellen Page, Kristen Stewart and Natalie Portman come to mind. But they could also cast a young European unknown capable of surprising audiences.

Yes please!

    Ok, for those of you who haven’t seen these movies or read the books – just no way Natalie is going to do it! The character is physically and emotionally just a wrong fit for Nat. Although I’d love to see her try and pull it off I just don’t see it happening.

    Physically she needs to be strong to pull off some of the stuff she does (as well as some lesbian stuff) and emotionally the character is so far down the dark path after getting buttfucked (literally), think Mathilda if Leon had raped her. Just no…

    meaning to read these for ages *adds to xmas list*. i heard that she is the main character tho. if so, interesting that she gets described as a sidekick considering the first book’s original title is “men who hate women”.

    Just speaking about the movies, it goes up and down, she’s a sidekick in the first one but that changes…
