Sony are continuing their search for the perfect female to play the role of Lisbeth Salander, in the movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” but it seems that Kristen Stewart has not made the cut.
The Stieg Larsson book is one of the greatest selling novels in the world in recent years and it has already been made into a movie in Sweden. However for the Sony version of the movie Daniel Craig (of James Bond fame) has been lined up to play the lead male role, Mikael Blomkvist.
Though many though that Kristen Stewart or, perhaps Ellen Page (from “Juno” and “Inception”) would perfect a source has told E! that Sony does not seem to think so.
“Kristen Stewart is being considered [for the role], but she has not screen-tested…It looks like she may be out of the running because of Twilight scheduling conflicts,” said the source.
A source from Summit films also confirmed that Stewarts schedule for the “Twilight Saga” would make it impossible for her to be cast.
"Production dates are not firm but it's still looking like “Breaking Dawn” will start production in Louisiana in the fall, probably October or November."
Sony’s version of the movie will be shot in Sweden and the two main leads will be asked to sign a contract for all three in the movie.
