"...'Lisbeth Salander' lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish City Hospital, fighting for her life in more ways than one.

"If and when she recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three killings.

"With the help of her friend, journalist 'Mikael Blomkvist', she will fight those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back..."

‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Snares Sverrir Gudnason, Replacing Daniel Craig

‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Snares Sverrir Gudnason, Replacing Daniel Craig
Remember "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", the first book in the worldwide literary hit the "Millennium" series that was just about everywhere with its iconic book cover back in the mid-to-late 2000s? Well that series is still chugging along despite author Stieg Larsson's death in 2004, with Swedish author and crime journalist David Lagercrantz continuing the adventures of investigative journalist/publisher Mikael Blomkvist and gifted hacker Lisbeth Salander. Larsson's other posthumous releases, "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" were adapted into Swedish-language films directed by …

It's Official: Rooney Mara Is Out as Lisbeth Salander and Claire Foy Is In

  • BuzzSugar
If you thought the American film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's addicting novels (known as the Millennium series) were long dead, think again. According to Deadline, The Crown's Claire Foy is the latest actress to take on the role of Lisbeth Salander, the sulky protagonist of the gripping mystery stories. But there's a catch: Foy is actually set to star in the film adaptation of The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth novel in the Millennium series that was written by David Lagercrantz rather than Larsson. If you're confused about the move, just know that this has pretty much nothing to do with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which hit theaters in 2011 (other than the recurring characters). Obviously, Rooney Mara is no longer our dark and twisty heroine, and additionally, visionary director David Fincher is not on board either. Instead, Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez has signed on.

Image Source: Everett Collection Movies get rebooted at an alarming rate these days, because it seems that Hollywood just can't let a franchise die. (Also: because money.) David Fincher's 2011 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was itself a successful reboot of the 2009 Swedish-language series starring Noomi Rapace (based on the Stieg Larsson novels), and now, the franchise is coming back again with a sequel but with an all-new cast, director, and story. You probably have a lot of questions about this new chapter, called The Girl in the Spider's Web, so we'll do our best to iron it all out. Which book is the next movie based on? Sony Pictures, the studio behind the 2011 film, is adapting The Girl in the Spider's Web into film.

Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander

Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander
It seems Sony Pictures may have found their new Lisbeth Salander in The Crown star Claire Foy, despite reports from March that both Scarlet Johansson and Natalie Portman were up for the role. Claire Foy is reportedly in early talks, but she may not be set quite yet. Insiders claim that, while Claire Foy has in fact been offered the role, there are still scheduling issues that need to be worked out before she can sign on.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this coveted role went down to both Claire Foy and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones. It's possible that Felicity Jones may be offered the role if these scheduling conflicts can't be worked out, but that has yet to be confirmed. Claire Foy has also been fielding interest to star in Universal's biopic First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as American astronaut Neil Armstrong, although it

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Sequel Is Happening with Don't Breathe Director

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Sequel Is Happening with Don't Breathe Director
Last November, we reported that Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with a sequel to their 2011 adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, entitled The Girl In the Spider's Web. However, this follow-up was being set up without director David Fincher or stars Daniel Craig (Mikael Blomkvist) and Rooney Mara (Lisbeth Salander). A report surfaced earlier this month that Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez is being considered for this project, and today the director confirmed that he has signed on, and it will be his next project.

Fede Alvarez confirmed that The Girl In the Spider's Web will be his next project during an interview with ComingSoon.net. The studio decided to skip over author Stieg Larsson's remaining two novels, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, instead opting to adapt The Girl In the Spider's Web, a follow-up to Stieg Larsson

Daniel Craig is reportedly demanding a pay rise for Sony Pictures's Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel.

The studio has an option on Craig for sequels The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, but the actor is asking for more money following the $1 billion success of Skyfall.

Sony is looking to cut costs on the Stieg Larsson sequel and could potentially write Craig's character Mikael Blomkvist out of the movie, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Steven Zaillian has written the script for the movie, which is described as "production-ready". The studio may need to turn to another writer if Blomkvist has to be written out of the picture.

A Craig source allegedly claimed that the 007 star hasn't started negotiations yet and is keen to return for the follow-up.

'Girl Who Played with Fire' and 'Paranormal Activity 4' are in the Works

Just looking at the box-office numbers it wouldn't take a seasoned veteran to realize David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is under-performing considering the rumored $90 million budget and the $60 million it has earned so far. However, with an A CinemaScore from audiences, an 85% at RottenTomatoes and an 8.3/10 rating from IMDb users so far, it would seem a sequel may not be all that bad an idea considering people will also still have time to find the film on Blu-ray and DVD which would mean for much larger potential for the sequel. Not to forget, foreign market totals have just started trickling in where it has made just over $12 million so far. As far as Columbia moving forward with the second film in Stieg Larsson's "Millennium Trilogy," The Girl Who Played with Fire, a spokesman was quoting telling Entertainment Weekly that "development continues" on the sequel and

Director David Fincher Not Sure About Sequels to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

There are three books in the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson's "Millenium series" of crime-mystery novels that feature the now-iconic characters Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2005), The Girl Who Played with Fire (2006) and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (2007). There are also three internationally acclaimed Swedish movie adaptations based on Larsson's posthumously published novels. As such, it almost seems like a foregone conclusion that Columbia Pictures' The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — which opens nationwide today — will be the first movie in a trilogy of English-language movie adaptations. Surprisingly, sequels are anything but a given for director David Fincher, who recently told IndieWIRE that "the story is complete" in Dragon Tattoo and he feels no "need" to make sequels.

Get Ready for Nine Hours of the 'Dragon Tattoo Trilogy'

I have read Stieg Larsson's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played with Fire." I also saw all three Swedish adaptations of the Millennium trilogy, including The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, in theaters. And there are a few things to say.

First, I found the first movie to probably be the best of the trilogy even though I thought the second film did a better job with the Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) character. The third film, however, was so bad it caused me to not want to even read the third book.

Speaking of the books, I enjoyed the two that I read but I wouldn't say they are excellent in any manner of speaking. They are a bit ponderous, but for the most part highly enjoyable and, as is often the case, the books are better than the films. At least in terms of story.
