Thompson on Hollywood

Endgame Entertainment is financing writer-director Ron Nyswaner's Freeheld, based on Cynthia Wade's Oscar-winning documentary short about New Jersey car mechanic Stacie Andree (Page) and her detective partner’s struggle to obtain pension benefits after she is diagnosed as terminally ill. The feature has lined up Juno star Ellen Page (Gawker's shameless headline: Ellen Page is a Lesbian). Endgame's James Stern (Every Little Step) will produce with Wade, Double Feature Films’ Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher and Vie Entertainment’s Kelly Bush.

Coming up for Page is Chris Nolan's Inception, co-starring Leonardo DiCaprio, due this July, and she just completed shooting James Gunn's Super.

But will she be available to do David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? She's still my first choice, if they don't go with an unknown European. And Carey Mulligan is so good in Wall Street 2 that I might go along with her after all.

    This might be the time to reprise results from your previous poll on who should play Lisbeth Salander????
