Christopher Plummer has joined the cast of David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He will play the patriarch of the family with dark secrets, says Heat Vision.
Currently shooting in Sweden, the Columbia Pictures adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s book stars Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Stellan Skarsgard, Robin Wright and Max von Sydow.
The novel describes the mystery surrounding the long-unsolved disappearance of an heiress. A journalist recently dinged by a libel case and a young female hacker try to resolve it, stirring up bundles of personal and industrial corruption along the way.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is scheduled for a December 21, 2011 release.
