LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Christopher Plummer will play the patriarch of a family with dark secrets in the Hollywood remake of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

The Columbia Pictures movie, which is shooting in Sweden with David Fincher behind the camera, stars Daniel Craig as a disgraced journalist who teams up with a pierced and tattooed hacker, played by Rooney Mara. The two are hired by a wealthy industrialist (Plummer) to solve a 40-year unsolved murder, but the case uncovers a web of familial corruption.

A veteran of stage and screen, Plummer voiced the part of the villain in Disney/Pixar's "Up" and earned his only Oscar nomination this year for playing Leo Tolstoy opposite Helen Mirren in the drama "The Last Station."
