Noomi Rapace has declared she is "finished" with Lisbeth Salander.

The Swedish actress is so done with the character she portrayed for the big-screen adaptations of Stieg Larsson's Millennium novels that she wouldn't even consider working with acclaimed director David Fincher and leading man Daniel Craig for the Hollywood remake.

"With the remake, I've been very clear on that point from the beginning; it doesn't matter who is going to direct, it doesn't matter who is going to play Mikael Blomkvist, I'm finished," she told Total Film.

Noomi reckons the Oscar-nominated filmmaker can do the books justice.

"I love Fight Club and I think Seven is an amazing film. I think Fincher is one of the few directors in the world that can do something really good with it - but I'm done with her," she explained.

"I don't have this dream about Hollywood. For me, it's more important to work with people and do projects that I deeply believe in and feel like I really have to do."

Bond star Daniel will play roving journalist Mikael Blomkvist for David's English-language adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, while the coveted role of computer hacker Lisbeth has yet to be decided, with Ellen Page and Mia Wasikowska rumoured to be in the frame.
