It’s time to take Carey Mulligan’s name off the list of candidates to play Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming U.S. version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Mulligan tells EW she is not going to be playing the titular badass hacker heroine. “I’m not, I’m afraid,” she told EW yesterday. “I can officially quash that rumor once and for all. It’s not going to be me. But I’m excited to see it. I love the books and I think it will be great.”

Mulligan will next be seen in two fall movies, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Never Let Me Go.

Yesterday, my colleague Nicole Sperling posted a great item listing a the actresses now being mentioned (like Rooney Mara, Ellen Page, and Mia Wasikowska) as in the running to play Lisbeth. With Mulligan out, who is your preferred choice?

    I’m not at all disappointed. It’s a truly dreadful, sloppily written book, one of the worst I have read, and the character of Lisbeth Salander was never going to be right for Carey Mulligan. It might have been a challenge, but it would have been a wrong career move, just as happened to Helena Bonham-Carter when she took roles that deliberately contradicted her obvious good (and unusual) looks.
