Sony to reboot Lisbeth Salander franchise…

There is still no word on whether or not Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara will return for the Millennium sequel, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and there is still no word on whether or not David Fincher is coming back to direct the sequel either.

Sony doesn’t care and they are no longer waiting for them ’cause they are moving ahead with an all new Lisbeth Salander reboot. They won’t be starting with the original trilogy by Stieg Larsson but instead, they will make the film on a lower budget.

It’s looking more likely that Craig, Mara and Fincher won’t return to the franchise so Sony has no choice but to go on without them.


Such a shame ’cause I loved the American version of “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” by David Fincher. It’s looking like Fincher won’t comeback at all ’cause he’s got a lot of other projects up ahead.

I don’t think I’ll bother reading the 4th Lisbeth Salander novel ’cause like most people, I believe only Stieg can only write the stories. They shouldn’t have continued on without him. I love the Lisbeth Salander stories ’cause I’ve read the first three books.


Rooney Mara claims David Fincher’s “Dragon Tattoo” trilogy is dead but that’s according to her, though…

We haven’t seen a sequel of David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” based upon the book by Stieg Larsson and we finally got a new update of what’s going on with the film’s sequel, “The Girl Who Played With Fire”.

Rooney Mara spoke about the film toward E! TV and she claims the sequel isn’t going to happen and she thinks she will never play the role of Lisbeth Salander ever again. This is according to her, though.

Even though she says it might not happen, Fincher said it might ’cause Sony just spent millions on the rights and the script.


Over the last few years since Fincher hasn’t made a sequel yet, he kept himself busy with the “House of Cards” TV show for Netflix and he also made the film, “Gone Girl”. After “Gone Girl”, he’s gonna keep himself even busier ’cause he’s been signed to make a TV show for HBO called, “Utopia” so don’t expect a new David Fincher movie in the theaters anytime soon.


So if David Fincher makes the “Girl Who Played With Fire”, we probably won’t see it in a few years or longer.

We’ll have to wait and see, though. I hope Fincher will find some time to develop, “Girl Who Played With Fire” ’cause Daniel Craig is getting older and Rooney might lose interest in playing the role so I hope he makes it soon.

I really loved Fincher’s version of “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, the American version ’cause it was pretty close to the book. I think the French version pretty much sucked… wasn’t faithful to the book at all.

Lets hope Rooney is wrong and hope the film will happen. I say never say never!!!!!!!! Keep fingers crossed for now!


4th Lisbeth Salander book on the way but will be written by a different writer…

Before Stieg Larrson’s death, the Swedish author originally had plans to write 10 Lisbeth Salander novels but he suddenly died while in the middle of writing the fourth one. Now a different Swedish writer has been signed to write the 4th installment. Yes, a 4th Millennium book is coming whether Stieg is around or not.

See the full story, here.

I’m a huge fan of the Lisbeth Salander stories and would like to see this continue but they shouldn’t be written by someone else. Only Stieg could write those stories well. I’m sure other authors can write those stories okay but it’ll definitely feel different with a different writer, ya know? It’s going to feel weird reading a Millennium novel with Stieg not being the author but since Stieg is dead… they should be well left alone. Think about it, right? They should respect his work and should be left as those three: “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, “Girl Who Played With Fire” and “Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest”. All three are amazing books. Respect Stieg’s work and legacy. These bastards are just exploiting him for money… hoping Hollywood will keep making more sequels. This is pathetic. The industry over in Sweden can be just as shady as the USA.

Not sure if I’ll read the next novel or not. Probably won’t.


Report: David Fincher’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, first trailer will arrive online June 2nd, next week…

Deadline reveals today that the US version of the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, first trailer will debut overseas first. Then the trailer will hit online June 2nd for all of us to see, then the trailer will be in movie theaters next weekend.

More on it, here.

I still stand by it that I didn’t like the Swedish version of “The Girl With Dragon Tattoo”. Noomi Rapace made a great Lisbeth Salander but the movie was pure shit.

I hope Fincher’s version is a better film and can’t wait to see the first trailer.
