True, with all the critical acclaim NR has received it must be a daunting thought to step into her shoes knowing that you will be immediately compared to her. The fear of failing and living up to her standard must be high.Germangirl wrote:Don't you also think, that the problem with the Lisbeth role is, that the actresses shy away from the challenge of being as good as NR? Even more so the established actresses - if they fail in the comparison, they might be afraid it hurts their career. Not everybody is as brave with taken challenges as Daniel - many wanna play it save.
Incidentally, I watched the Swedish version last night. It was very good.
However, it missed some parts of the book out. Not serprising really considereing how detailed and complex the book is. Some of the characters in the book do not even appear in the film or only appear very briefly.
Should be interesting to compare both versions. Scott Rudin who is producing Fincher's version has said that he has deliberartely not watched the Swedish film so that he can stay faithful to the book.
