Stewart & Mulligan Battle For Tattoo Role
Well this should be interesting. Carey Mulligan (An Education) and Kristen Stewart (ermm…Twilight) are both vying to claim the leading role in David Fincher’s remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
The Fight Club director has signed up to do a remake of the Swedish film based on Stieg Larsson’s novels and will be choosing the titular actress pretty soon.
Many belive that the Twilight star will have an advantage over her rival after working with Fincher before (she got her first break in Panic Room) but Mulligan has claimed a number of awards in recent years and was nominated for an Academy Award for her turn in An Education.
A studio executive close to the project told reporters: “It’s an edgy, sexy, demanding role which would have been perfect for Angelina Jolie – if she was only ten years younger. So the very best twentysomething actresses around today are in the frame – and that’s a very short list.”
