It has been confirmed that a sequel to the 2011 blockbuster "Girl with The Dragon tattoo" will soon be made, but it will not star either Daniel Craig or Rooney Mara who played the lead roles in its prequel. The sequel has been named "The Girl in the Spider's Web", and it will hit the cinemas on October 05, 2018.

The announcement regarding the sequel was made at the London Book Fair on March 13, 2017. Scarlett Johansson or Natalie Portman might replace Rooney Mara.

Will Fede Alvarez' direction live up to the expectations?

The prequel of this movie was directed by David Fincher and the psychological thriller, with its unique cinematic language, emerged as one of the finest made thrillers of the 21st century.

Fede Alvarez, the Uruguayan filmmaker who has previously made movies like "Evil Dead" and "Don't Breathe" is directing this sequel. The director is quite keen to rope in a fresh star cast, and as a result, Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig will not return as Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist respectively.

Sanford Panitch, the President of Colombia Pictures issued a statement which said that Lisbeth Slander is probably one of the greatest female literary characters of all time. He called Slanders the most compelling character which we have seen in the recent times.

Fede Alvarez' previous two movies were dark themed, and his expertise in handling this style of treatment is expected to have positive effects while making a stout thriller like "The Girl in the Spider's Web".

The director is now busy finalizing the lead artists for this movie.

Production of the film to begin on September

Fede Alvarez is planning to begin the production work in September 2017. In a recent talk with the USA Today, Fede Alvarez told that it is the dream of any director to portray the story of a powerful character like Slanders on screen.

The director also added that the script is absolutely great, and the most challenging thing he is facing is regarding the selection of actress who will play the character of Lisbeth.
