    'Dragon Tattoo' Director Niels Arden Oplev Ready To Delve Into 'Game Theory'

    While Noomi Rapace has quickly capitalized on the success of the Swedish language "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" films, with roles in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows" and "Prometheus" on the way, director Niels Arden Oplev's steps into Hollywood have been a bit more tentative.
