The Powers That Be have opted to remake The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, even though the original version is just two years old and, to me at least, a perfectly satisfactory work with a standout performance by Noomi Rapace in the title role. Of course, that picture was Swedish, so those gosh darned subtitles are an imposing chore for America’s “slow readers” and illiterates. Filling time while Barbara Broccoli sorts out the tangled finances of the next James Bond movie, Daniel Craig stars as Blomkvist and Rooney Mara plays Lisbeth. It’s under the direction of David Fincher, which could be a blessing or a curse.
