The helmer behind the original Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has been tapped to go behind the camera for USA’s pilot Mr. Robot. The hacking drama from exec producers Sam Esmail, Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton centers on Elliot, a young programmer who suffers from a debilitating anti-social disorder and decides that he can only connect to people by hacking them. Oplev, who directed the pilot for CBS’ Under The Dome and episodes of Unforgettable, most recently helmed the 2013 feature Dead Man Down.
