Fans of the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo should prepare themselves… it looks like the sequel is dead in the water according to E!.
Lisbeth Salander herself, Rooney Mara, has said that it’s just not going to happen: “I’m sad never to do it again, but it just doesn’t seem like it’s in the cards. I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have [has] a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book.”
Director David Fincher said a few weeks ago that he was hopeful it would happen although it would be quite different from the books (here), but now that Sony is under new management, it’s hard to know what will happen.
But we wouldn’t hold our breath.
