Just the other day, we got confirmation that one Daniel Craig would become Mikael Blomkvist in David Fincher's English-language remake ofThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But as central as he is to the ever-popular story, there's no film without Lisbeth Salander, and no point even trying to fill Noomi Rapace's skilled shoes unless you've got the right girl. Over the last few months, we've heard murmurs of Carey Mulligan, Ellen Page, and more as young actresses clamored to the project and it's popular, beloved, and kick-ass character.

Fincher hasn't made his pick yet, but according to new reports, he's taking the task very serious, running actresses through the faux-pierced, costumed ringer to find the next Lisbeth.
