Things aren't all smooth on the Swedish set of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.'

Director David Fincher, who earned a 2010 Oscar nomination for 'The Social Network,' is currently working on an American adaptation of the international bestsellers by Stieg Larsson, the Millenium Trilogy.

From Europe, Variety reports, he called his former director of photography Jeff Cronenweth and asked him to take over for 'Dragon Tattoo' because of "differences of opinion" with current D.P. Fredrick Backar.
