‘Dragon Tattoo’ Named Year’s Riskiest Film to Insure

International filming locations, motorcycle riding by its Oscar-nominated actress, and physical scenes made “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” the riskiest film for Fireman’s Fund to insure in 2011. The movie dons the riskiest-film title even after some of the stunts needed to be toned down or scrapped because of insurance concerns.

“There was a lot of riding,” says Wendy Diaz, entertainment underwriting director at Fireman’s Fund. “We knew that early on, and the actress was not a rider.”

“Fireman’s Fund, [for example], insures 80 percent of U.S. films, and its credibility as experienced underwriters is respected in the industry,” says Diaz.

“The insurer visits sets each month to stay up-to-date and maintain its relationships, she adds. “They know we are working with the best interest of the client in mind.”
