Stewart: Twilight To Tattoo?

The rumored short list for the title role of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is out and even though she was reportedly being considered, The Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart is seemingly out of contention.

Kristen StewartEntertainment Weekly has reported that the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander could be played by Inception's Ellen Page or Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska.

An Education's Carey Mulligan was also thought to be in contention, but the actress apparently told the magazine she would not be playing Lisbeth. So, now, it really looks like it's not going to be Kristen Stewart.

Other names on the short list for the David Fincher helmed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo include Rooney Mara, who will star in the upcoming The Social Network and Emily Browning, who will be seen in next year's Sucker Punch. Australian actresses Sarah Snook and Sophie Lowe are also being mentioned for the role.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is based on the crime novel of the same name about a journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, who teams up with tattooed, computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander, to investigate a woman's 40-year-old disappearance. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is of course more complicated than that as it includes elements of mystery, family drama, love and financial intrigue.

The latest James Bond incarnation, Daniel Craig, is in talks to play Mikael Blomkvist.

Even without a leading lady attached, the expected release date for the film is reportedly December 21, 2011.

I can't think of anyone worse than kristen stewart for the part although much as I like Daniel Craig and think he'll be good in the part, Viggo Mortensen is also a good pick.

Kristen is perfect for this role, but she will be filming Breaking Dawn and On the Road, this is the reason why she's not on the list. She wanted to do it, but because of her prior commitments she couldn't. But she said she's excited to see the movie when it comes out. PS - those are her words not mine. Someone asked her about the role on the red carpet during the Twilight Eclipse Premiere. I watched all of her interviews live that night.

GREAT NEWS! SHE "WILL NOT" BE PLAYING THE ROLE. SHE HAS TOO MANY ANNOYING "TICKS". ANGELINA SOUNDS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE BUT MAYBE TOO OLD. NOT SURE WHAT THE AGE IS OF LISBETH. WHILE KRISTEN MAY HAVE "THE LOOK"...SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE ACTING ABILITY, YET. DON'T FORGET....THE RUNAWAYS ONLY MADE 2 MIL AT THE BOX OFFICE. PATTINSON IS THE DRAW FOR THE TWILIGHT MOVIES. WAIT AND SEE HOW MUCH MEET THE RILEYS MAKES.

Viggo Mortensen and kristen stewart would be perfect for the parts. Mika should be older that craig and Viggo has that sweden look. Kristen would be perfect for the girl, she could portray the dark and brillant mind and humanity that is needed.
