‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Movie Sequel Release Date: Rooney Mara said it is unlikely that a sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which co-starred Daniel Craig as journalist Mikael Blomkvist, will come to the screen.
The next book in the series was to “The Girl Who Played With Fire.”
There were rumors that “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest” are scheduled to hit the big screens in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
The longer it is between films, the worse the chances are of David Fincher bringing “The Girl Who Played With Fire” to the screen.
The chances of Mara reprising her role as Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” are getting slimmer even if Fincher isn’t back to helm the sequel.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Mara Rooney told the press at an Oxfam benefit in New York.
“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 …
it will result in something”.
And of that script, she said that “I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book”.
Steven Zaillian and Andrew Kevin Walker wrote the script for “The Girl Who Played With Fire.” Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara and Fincher are all interested in making a “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” movie sequel, but the longer the wait, the less likely it is to happen.
“Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” grossed a disappointing $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget.
The original English-language “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” starred Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig.
Mara, who is on the short list in the new Star Wars spinoff, was nominated for an Academy Award.
The Swedish versions of “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest,” came out in 2009.
There have been no official confirmations on the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequels.
“The script that we now have has huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book,” David Fincher told the Brazilian site overtice.com.br.
a few months ago.
“I think because (Sony) already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something,” Film Divider reported that Fincher told the Swedish site Afton Bladet.
Norstedts, the Swedish publisher of the best-selling novel trilogy that began with “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” announced that it hired an author to write a new sequel to the series.
Swedish author David Lagercrantz will write a fourth book in the Millennium series, to be published in August 2015.
The storyline will continue where the third book in the trilogy left off, but with a completely new plot.
Stieg Larsson, the author of the bestselling Millennium novels, died almost a decade ago.
Larsson wrote three books out of a planned 10-book series: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.
