David Fincher Changes The Ending Of Dragon Tattoo

On Wednesday we posted here the first official photos of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s remake of the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Thursday more photos were released of Mara’s stunning transformation as the computer hacker.  All the photos were courtesy of W magazine.

What we haven’t talked about is the 8 page story about Fincher’s remake.  It’s an interesting read where both Fincher and Mara talk about the film.

From the article, Fincer on the script:

“The script, which captures the novel’s bleak tone (its original Swedish title was Men Who Hate Women), was written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote Schindler’s List, and it departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending-the resolution of the drama-has been completely changed. This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved on Larsson-the script’s ending is more interesting.”

I figured that Blomkvist’s promiscuity would be toned down. Having read the books and seeing the original films where they also toned down his promiscuity a bit that makes sense. I’m really interested to see how much more aggressive Lisbeth can be. And I’m shocked and a little upset that the ending has changed. Hopefully it will not hurt the film.

The article reveals more about the film such as the hard auditioning process Mara and others vying for the role of Lisbeth had to go through in order to get the part.
