Kristen Stewart and Carey Mulligan will reportedly fight it out for the lead role in the forthcoming film ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.’

According to the Sun, David Fincher is set to give the Swedish thriller a Hollywood makeover – and now he’s looking to cast his leading lady.

And rumours are abuzz that Stewart and Carey Mulligan will go head-to-head for the role, which is said to be ‘edgy, sexy and demanding,’ reports the Daily Telegraph.

Fincher has previously directed ‘The Game’, ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Zodiac’.

He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Director for his 2008 film ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’.

    I enjoy Kristen so much, but if this is true, I think the role would be better for Carey since in a lot of Kristen’s roles, she acts the same.

    Now let’s not bash Kristen :). She was amazing in Speak, The Messengers, and in The Runaways. I’m watching The Greatest right now and Carey’s amazing in it! I love both girls! And apparently they are friends so I doubt they are “head-to-head” fighting. But I saw this movie on Carey’s IMDB page. So I’m sure she will do it, which I’m excited about! Plus, Kristen has 2 other projects going on. Yay Carey!

    I do hope Carey will get this role as I think she’ll be much more capable of doing it. Kristen is not a bad actress but her range is not that big. :\
