  2. Yea, it's got around 6 or 7 verses. It is, in my opinion, one of the most beautifully written songs, both musically and lyrically.

    Agreed. My personal favourite though has got to be kd lang's version, partly because of her lovely, rich voice and partly because I think it works so well as a piano-based song. She drops a few verses like most of the covers, but as long as they keep the "baby I've been here before..." and the "maybe there's a God above" ones I don't mind so much.

  5. They are doing an American remake, but it actually could turn out pretty good depending on what you think of David Fincher (Se7en, The Game). He's gonna direct it.

    The thing is I think a remake is unnecessary. The story works on a certain level with a certain tone that I think Oplev captured well: subdued yet powerful. A remake would likely either copy the original and if so offer no new interpretation or worse "Hollywoodize" it, heighten the violence, increase the pace, compromise the source material for a market of moviegoers who aren't used to being patient with plot and development.

    Also, I don't think how good it will be will depend on the director per se. The story and movie hinges on Lisbeth's character and I highly doubt any other actress (especially the mainstream ones that you know the studio will pressure him to cast) can be as real and full an incarnation of her as Noomi Rapace, in both look and attitude.
