Christopher Plummer has joined Columbia Picture's adaptation of Stieg Larsson's posthumously published crime book sensation The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, set to portray the patriarch of the family with dark secrets, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

David Fincher is directing the film, which stars Daniel Craig as a disgraced journalist who teams up with a pierced and tattooed hacker, played by Rooney Mara.

The two are hired by a wealthy industrialist (Christopher Plummer) to solve a 40-year unsolved murder, but the case uncovers a web of familial corruption.
