The details


Niels Arden Oplev (pronounced [nels ɑːˀd̥n̩ ˈʌb̥lew]) (born 26 March 1961) is a writer-director from Denmark.


His 1996 film Portland was entered into the 46th Berlin International Film Festival.

He directed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the 2009 Swedish film based on Stieg Larsson's novel of the same title and won critical acclaim internationally. Oplev decided to not continue directing the second and third parts of the Millennium Trilogy due to time constraints. The film has broken box office records in Europe, grossing over $100 million USD.

He is set to direct The Keep based again on the novel with the same name and Good People based on the novel by Marcus Sakey.

On 30 November 2012 it was announced that Oplev will direct the pilot of a 13-episode mini-series based on the Stephen King novel Under the Dome for CBS.
