Emma Watson as Lisbeth Salander?

Well as much as we respect and admire Emma Watson and her role as Hermione Granger I can only hope that reports in the UK Sun newspaper are wrong and that She isn't considering or being considered for the role of Lisbeth Salander in the UK/US remake of The Millenium series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who played with Fire and the Girl who kicked the Hornets nest.

While the connection for me of BOTH my favourite all time adaptations would be fantastic I personally hope the films are never re-made for a more 'mainstream' audience, esspecially as English Subtitled versions are now available of the originals on Blu Ray and feature Noomi Rapace who was as perfect as could be in the role of Lisbeth.
If they are to be remade, then surely only someone like Natalie Portman could pull the job off and have the range required for the incredibly tough role which is extremely graphic on all levels.

The Sun isnt generally known for letting facts get in the way of a story and I doubt 'Gordon Smith', the bizarre editor has ever read the books or seen the original Swedish movies anyway or this would be painfully obvious and not just based on a haircut!!!
As a collector of the original books and manuscripts from the Millenium series I usually take notice of what is proposed and I had a whisper that the films were being considered for remake and that Gary Oldman was the first choice as Michael Blomkist.
