Sony and producer Scott Rudin snapped up rights for an English-language remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, based on Stieg Larsson’s novel. Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List) will write the script, and David Fincher (Zodiac) is interested in directing. But director Niels Arden Oplev bristles that Sony’s press release described his version, a box office hit in Europe, as being ”for Swedish television and home video.” Says Oplev: ”Nobody’s going to call my film a TV film unless they want to meet me in a dark alley with a baseball bat.”
