An American group has bought the rights to do the film in English, so this is going to happen. Tom Cruise? Where did you hear this? Not Bloomquist I hope.
Sorry for the heart attack. I mis-remembered:

here's the quote from Wikipedia:

According to The Guardian, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt are all interested in playing the central role of Mikael Blomkvist, but Daniel Craig was in more serious talks for the lead in June.[14] Twilight's Kristen Stewart and Juno's Ellen Page have expressed interest to play Lisbeth Salander, as well as Carey Mulligan. Producer Søren Stærmose of Yellow Bird, who holds the screen rights to the books, has been approached by directors including Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, and Martin Scorsese.[15][16] On December 16, 2009 leading Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment are in final negotiating with Yellow Bird about the film rights according to Yellow Bird Managing Director Mikael Wallén. Steve Zaillian has been in discussions to adapt the first book.[17][18] [19]

David Fincher is set to direct a 2012 production starrring Daniel Craig and Carey Mulligan.[20]


The bolded part must have been added recently. Source was a Roger Ebert column dated 7/7/10. So, it's a go.

I think that Daniel Craig would be right for the role of Blomquist. I am trying to remember Carey Mulligan from Public Enemies.

When I linked back to the Ebert article, he mentioned the non-Twilight Kristen Stewart. Is there another actress named Kristen Stewart?
