Although it's not confirmed, there is a very strong possibility that Brad Pitt will star opposite British born- Irish actress, Carey Mulligan in the US remake of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

David Fincher, director of "Se7en" and this movie is a good friend of Pitt's and wants him on the project.

If Pitt refuses the part other actors mentioned include Johnny Depp and George Clooney.

Carey, an up and coming actress who recently featured in Brothers, is rumored to have already secured a three-film deal for the "Millennium Trilogy" based on the books by Stieg Larsson.

Personally i'd love to see Pitt get hot and steamy with Carey but if that doesn't work then Clooney would do the trick too.

Watch this space.
