The Hollywood Reporter is saying today that Daniel Craig’s Mikael Blomkvist may not appear if a sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is to be made. The original, which made close to $300 million worldwide, wasn’t the break-out success the studio was hoping for, so reports are that they’re looking to make The Girl Who Played With Fire for much less than the $90 million the original cost. Problem is, Daniel Craig wants a raise. If the studio and the actor can’t come to an agreement, there’s talk that Craig’s Blomkvist will be written out and the focus will solely be on Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander. On that note, take our poll and let us know what you think of the possibilities!
