Hold on!

Swedish gloom permeates the unsettling newly released trailer for the Hollywood adaption of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The David Fincher-directed film stars Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, and also features Daniel Craig and Christopher Plummer.

The wordless trailer – which is set to a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song," re-imagined as a pulsating, industrial rave-up by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O and Trent Reznor – features menacing snow-covered roads, gun battles and car chases.

Touted in the trailer as the "feel bad movie of Christmas," The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo is slated to be released on Dec. 21.

Rooney Mara has gone from sweet-faced star to bad girl Lisbeth Salander.

Mara, 25, is in Sweden shooting the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

In photos hot off the set, the actress – whose chestnut hair normally falls past her shoulders in gentle waves – is now sporting a severe raven-black cut with blunt bangs.

But the highly coveted role of Lisbeth Salander, the punky math genius and computer hacker in Stieg Larsson's best-selling mystery novel, won't be going to a familiar face in Hollywood.

Natalie Portman, Ellen Page and Carey Mulligan were rumored to be front-runners – and PEOPLE.com readers voted for casting Kristen Stewart in the role. But, according to an Entertainment Weekly report, four relatively unknown actresses are actually up for the role. They are:

From the well-tailored secret agent James Bond to the grubby journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Daniel Craig certainly has range.

Entertainment Weekly confirms that Craig, 42, has signed to play the lead in the American adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling mystery novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, to be released Dec. 21, 2011, and followed by two other movies based on Larsson's Millennium trilogy.

Filming will take place in Sweden, David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) will direct, and Scott Rudin will produce. So far, no one has been cast in the role of Lisbeth Salander, though Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara have been mentioned.



In a PEOPLE Poll, readers selected Kristen Stewart to play the disaffected and heavily pierced 24-year-old computer hacker with a photographic memory and a violent temper, from a pool that also included Zoe Saldana, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman.
