“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.
