Daniel Craig too expensive for the The Hornet’s Nest?

February 2nd, 2013 by Marc Comments

It looks like Daniel Craig may not be returning to the sequel to the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, despite being one of the central characters…

Yes, Sony are intending in making the next to chapters in the Stieg Larsson Millenium trilogy – The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. However, despite the first movie costing $90 to make and taking $223 at the box office, they are afraid that Craig – who’s asking price has risen after the massive success of Skyfall – is now too expensive to put in the next movie.

Director of the first movie David Fincher is now wrapped up in Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl so won’t be returning, and now Sony want to cut serious costs before they finish the trilogy and Daniel Craig is top of the list to be severed. Which will be bizarre since his character Mikael Blomqvist plays a very big role in the story.

Sony are confident they have found a way to cut him out, but we feel this will be the kiss of death to the trilogy which started out pretty strongly…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
