Will New 'Dragon Tattoo' Book Sequel Become a Movie?

This story first appeared in the April 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Lisbeth Salander may be back. The fictitious hacker soon will return to the page in The Girl in the Spider's Web, touted as the fourth installment of the best-selling Millennium series that kicked off with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. But will the pierced protagonist also reappear on the big screen?

When she ran Sony, Amy Pascal negotiated for the studio's right to produce adaptations of the Millennium books, and sources say Sony also has rights to Spider's Web. Written by David Lagercrantz, not the original trilogy's late author, Stieg Larsson, the book is a continuation of Salander's exploits. Sony made David Fincher's 2011 Dragon Tattoo, which earned $233 million on a $90 million budget. But the studio has wanted to make the next film for significantly less than Fincher's version.

I wish they would do something. I wouldn't mind if they combined the last two into one movie. It might even be better if they did that. I just want to see the final story with the same characters.

Hopefully not, the Daniel Craig movie was so mediocre.
