Emma Watson recently cut her hair short for a screen-test to play the lead in the upcoming ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ adaptation. Watson hopes to play Lisbeth Salander.
An insider stated, “Emma has auditioned with director David Fincher and cut her hair to look the part. The character of Lisbeth is a misfit goth-type girl with spikey hair.”
The role is a big one right now, and it would mean a contract for three movies. Watson is no stranger to franchises, as she’s a star of the ‘Harry Potter’ films.
Daniel Craig has already been cast as the male lead, while rumor has it that Ellen Page, Kristen Stewart and a few others are also up for the Lisbeth role.
