Carey Mulligan is rumoured to be the favourite to star in an English remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

David Fincher is in talks to direct English language movie adaptations of the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy of books, according to New York Magazine's Vulture, while the first of the three Swedish film thrillers, The Girl With Dragon Tattoo, has just opened in UK cinemas.

Sony bought the rights to the English language versions late last year, with Scott Rudin producing and Steve Zaillian drafting the first screenplay, and Vulture claims Oscar nominee Carey, 24, is the favourite to star as punky, biker chick Lisbeth Salander.

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace plays the character in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which is already a success in Europe and the US.
