It was 2011 when the movie “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” was shown worldwide and somewhat gained positive remarks in the movie industry. Perhaps such is the reason why English version director David Fincher expresses his sentiments on the promising possibility of the creation of the other two sequels, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”
Earning over $231 million in the international box office cume, “The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo” opened up the promise of the creation of the Stieg Larsson book sequels and turning them into movies as well. Fast forward to the present, there are only rumors that could back this claim until director David Fincher remarks the existence of an already made script and a promising production waiting to happen as reported by Variety.
What made the director suddenly go hopeful this time? It’s all due to the many process that Sony, the production behind the medium, has had to go through in earning the film rights of the film all the way to creating it. It may not be totally up to him but according to the report of Film Divider, he responded to a Swedish site Afton Bladet that a sequel may well be on its way.
“I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book,” said Fincher as published Film Divider.
From this statement alone, it already makes us wonder about the potential movie’s difference from the written context. According to Screen Rant, the two protagonists find themselves in separate narratives. Salander (Rooney Mara) refuses to make further contact with Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and pursues an investigation on an underground sex trafficking in Sweden. In doing so, she gets to pry on the existence of a new character named Zala, which led to her falling under attack. This shadowy character also happens to bear a deep connection into her mysterious and troubled past. Ending on a cliffhanger, the story continues in “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” for the manifold conclusion.
In retrospect, how different will the movie be from the book series should Sony pursue its production? What do you think? Share your expectations on the comment section below.
