Daniel Craig reveals shock at risqu

07 July 2011

He's best known as the latest incarnation of 007, but Daniel Craig has has talked openly about his upcoming role in the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

The British star revealed that he was shocked by some of the film's risqué content when director David Fincher showed him some early footage and revealed it doesn't pull any punches “It's not that he simply showed me footage that was horribly graphic. It was stuff that was happening, or had happened. And somehow you don't see it.

There's more than one way to sense violence. Much more powerful ways than seeing it step-by-step. It's as adult as you can possibly make it. This is adult drama. I grew up, as we fucking all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults. And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore.

Fincher, he's not holding back. They've given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, ‘Are you fucking serious?’”

The remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo comes to UK cinemas on December 26, and stars Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Geraldine James and rising star Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander.
