NATALIE PORTMAN DISMISSES DRAGON TATTOO RUMOURS
NATALIE PORTMAN has dismissed rumours she's been approached to play
the lead role in a highly-anticipated Hollywood remake of THE GIRL
WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.
The first book in Stieg Larsson's popular Millennium Trilogy was
brought to the big screen this year (10) in the late writer's native
Sweden, but movie moguls in America are planning their own big budget
version of the story.
Many high profile names have been linked to the project, which will
be directed by David Fincher, and actresses including Portman, Kristen
Stewart and Carey Mulligan have all been rumoured to be in the running
to tackle the female lead, Lisbeth.
Portman admits she is a big fan of the book series, but is adamant
she hasn't been approached about the part.
She tells Moviehole.net, "I really like the books but I have not been
approached at all so any of that is pure rumour." (LR/WNWCMVH/ZN)
