David Fincher's 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' in Pre-production

David Fincher, 2008 Telluride Film Festival

Pre-production on David Fincher's upcoming film adaptation of Stieg Larsson's international mega-hit novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is in full swing with the director currently in Stockholm going over locations reports Screen Daily.

Fincher has landed in Stockholm where he joins the film's production designer to go over shooting locations for the upcoming film. There is already a highly successful Swedish-language film trilogy of the books out there. Fincher wants a "European look" for the film. All the exteriors will be shot in Sweden, however, due to tax incentives, studio work will be done in other countries.

The main locations, Hedestad and Hedeby Island, are fictional and were shot around Gnesta for the Swedish film. Fincher will likely choose a different part of the country for his shoot.

Stockholm film commissioner Ingrid Rudefors says the film will feature a "star-studded" cast. Steven Zaillian is still finishing the script and Fincher is still eying an unknown for the lead role of Lisbeth Salander.
