“Girl With Dragon Tattoo” sets Dec. 2011 date

The Sunday New York Times magazine story on author Stieg Larsson, which quotes producer Scott Rudin, seems to have confirmed a December 2011 release date for the David Fincher-directed version, as well as English-language versions of the second and third books.

films of the second and third books, which will be shot together. Scott Rudin,
the producer, said recently that the deal was immensely complicated to

The third book in the uber-hot trilogy, “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,”  comes out in U.S. bookstores Tuesday, May 25.

Meanwhile, the Swedish version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is nearing $10 million in the U.S. and Canada, making it by far the highest-grossing foreign language film of the year. Outside North America, it’s a far bigger hit, at more than $90 million.
