EXCLUSIVE: Add Daniel Craig to the conversation of who might star in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the David Fincher-directed adaptation of the novel by Stieg Larsson that has become such a publishing phenomenon. Nothing’s set, but I hear they’re talking. Steve Zaillian-scripted pic is being prepped by Columbia Pictures and producer Scott Rudin. Speculation has so far focused on Brad Pitt. No offers have been made, I’m told by the studio, but it’s the hot project, particularly with two more installments by the late Larsson right behind this one. Craig next stars in the Jon Favreau-directed Cowboys and Aliens. His franchise character, James Bond, is stuck in limbo because of the uncertainty over MGM.
