David Fincher - David Fincher's Swedish Shoot

David Fincher thinks it was important to shoot 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' in Sweden.

The 'Social Network' director believes filming the English-language remake of the Swedish film with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara needed to be done in the native country - despite the expense - because it would have been a completely different story had it been made in the US.

He said: "It cost more to make the movie, ironically, in Sweden. But it was worth it, because, you know, a 45-year-old journalist and a 23-year-old hacker who need each other and are leery of each other and have sex with each other and are friends with each other, if that takes place in Portland, Oregon, that's a whole different story. It's a different animal."

However the shoot was particularly gruelling, taking nearly 10 months to complete.

He added to Den of Geek: "We shot September to December, then we went back to the States and shot all the interiors. And then we went back to Stockholm and we shot, I'm going to say March through April. We shot probably five or six months, we were probably in Sweden for seven months, and three months in Los Angeles."
