What's Blocking the 'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel at Sony

Soon after THR reported Jan. 22 that David Fincher is in early talks to direct Fox's adaptation of the psychological thriller novel Gone Girl, questions arose about the fate of another Girl: Sony's The Girl Who Played With Fire.

The studio insists it still plans to make the long-percolating follow-up to its Fincher-helmed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but declines further comment. Although 2011's Tattoo made $233 million worldwide -- not a bad haul for a hard-R movie that came on the heels of a wildly successful Swedish-language trilogy also based on the books by Stieg Larsson -- the $90 million-budgeted film was not perceived as a runaway hit, and the studio is said to be hellbent on reducing the cost of the next chapter.

I can't wait for this to be made. I wasn't a fan of the European production of the trilogy and the ads for the American version didn't make it look too amazing, but after watching The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a solid movie.

I feel the same way but I don't want to see it without Daniel Craig and they are thinking about writing him out. I just think that's wrong.
