'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel Won't be Released in 2013, Still in The Works

EW Inside Movies:
The Girl Who Played With Fire, the sequel to last year’s David Fincher-directed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, will not be in theaters late next year as had originally been hoped, a source close to the production tells EW. Dragon Tattoo screenwriter Steven Zaillian is still working on the script, and nothing will move forward until the screenplay is nailed down. While there’s still no director attached, Fincher remains the first choice and hasn’t ruled out returning. And despite the uncertain timetable, the film is still definitely moving forward, although the source says that they are not in a rush and at this point there is no information about when it might be released. In November, Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal told us that stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig were both locked in for the sequel.

This is disappointing to me. I was hoping that it would at least be done by the end of 2013. I know they will get done...I was just hoping it would be sooner.

They need to shoot the 2nd and 3rd back to back so we're not waiting until 2016 to finish the trilogy up.

Meh. The Swedish version is much better anyways.

the american version of girl with the dragon tattoo is better than the swedish counterpart. it is a well directed movie which is vaery rare because it surpassed the original product. as long as rooney mara, daniel craig and david fincher will be returning the film is well established. but the key is if rooney mara gives the same dedication she has delivered in the first movie which was a gritty straightforward shameless interpretation of the character.
