Good news for fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The plan to make the film into a trilogy is still a go despite a less than stellar box office performance. While profitable, the $90 million production from director David Fincher failed to harness the source materials street cred into something special which is why plans for a sequel outing have been less than definite.
Reports are surfacing today that sources close to production has Steven Zaillian currently working on the script. Since that still needs to be ironed out, nothing has moved just yet and as a result it looks extremely unlikely that The Girl Who Played with Fire will happen by the end of next year. In other words, you might as well mark this one down as TBA 2014 on your calendars.
EW reminds audiences that Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig are obligated to return with a question mark next to Fincher’s name for the director’s chair. Craig should be available, but he might have an increased amount of jobs vying for his attention by time filming is set to begin. The actor will be coming off of Skyfall, the most anticipated James Bond movie to come around in quite some time. He might have to shrug off a few good opportunities just to get this one made.
