Well, it seems we finally have our answer: none of them!

EW has confirmed that David Fincher, who is directing the Hollywood adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, has narrowed the field down to four finalists, and none of the stars whose names had been bandied about — Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson — made the list. In fact, you may well not be familiar with any of Fincher’s final four. The actresses vying for the role are Rooney Mara (top, left), who recently finished working for Fincher on his upcoming film The Social Network; French actress Lea Seydoux (top, right), who played Isabella of Angouleme in this year’s Robin Hood and also appeared in Inglourious Basterds; Sarah Snook (bottom, left), an Australian actress who recently starred in Julia Leigh’s erotic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty; and Sophie Lowe (bottom, right), also an Aussie, who has appeared in a number of local productions, including Blessed and Blame. Granted, you may not have much to go on, but if you were making this major decision, which one of these actresses would you cast as Lisbeth? Vote below!
