No Daniel Craig in sequel to Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

No, it just cannot work without him.  Rumor has it that Daniel Craig may not play the role of Mikael Bloomkvist in the next installment of the movie series based on the popular best selling books by Stieg Larsson.  The next movie would be The Girl Who Played With Fire (I personally thought this was the best of the three, all were fantastic!).  Something about not be able to agree on a pay increase, blah, blah, blah etc.  There is actually talk of not casting anyone to play Bloomkvist and just having the movie focus on Lisbeth Salander played by Rooney Mara.  Do not see how they can pull that off.  I watched the Swedish versions of all three of these stories, they were exceptional as were the books.  Was pleasantly surprised when I saw the American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, did not think it could measure up to the excellent Swedish version.  I thought Daniel Craig was perfect for the role of Bloomkvist.  Hope they work this out because I do not see this living up to it’s potential without Bloomkvist in the movie role for installment #2 of the trilogy.
