When word hit that Hollywood was gearing up to remake 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' before the series even finished hitting U.S. soil, the news was rife with apprehension. Why remake it so soon, in this growing trend that also brought us 'Let Me In' a mere blink after 'Let the Right One In'? Then the news became more complicated when David Fincher signed on to helm it. Apprehension mixed with a curiosity as audiences wondered how he would handle the material.

One person we haven't heard much from in this remake whirlwind is original director Niels Arden Oplev. But now he's given his two cents on the issue, and he isn't very happy with the current remake trajectory.
