The American film adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by David Fincher may have raked in $233 million in the box office but it was considered a slight disappointment to the film's $90 million budget. But Sony will be picking the novel by Stieg Larsson (and later continued by David Lagercrantz) for a reboot.
Some sources claim that the new The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie won't even be using Larsson's original plot. Instead, they will be picking up the last book which is The Girl In The Spider’s Web, written by David Lagercrantz to continue the series after Larsson's death in 2004.
More drastic changes will be made. For one, Mara Rooney won't be coming back to reprise her role as the tattooed, cold and calculated computer hacker we all loved in the books and on the big screen. Nor will we see Daniel Craig again as the investigative journalist and the intense chemistry he had with Lisbeth Salander.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) director David Fincher won't be directing this film, either.
Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander is reportedly the top choice to play as Lisbeth in the reboot (or sequel). This is something to look forward to as the actress has proved her prowess in Ex Machina and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Vikander will also be starring in Bourne 5.
