David Fincher‘s reboot of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo never quite took off as much as Sony had hoped. Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig both delivered exceptional performances, yet here we sit without a sequel or an idea.
Yet Sony wants to tap Evil Dead reboot and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez to direct The Girl in the Spider’s Web, which is the fourth book of the series.
Kind of an odd choice, but I guess Sony wants to soft reboot the already rebooted “franchise”, unless they can call upon Mara and Craig once more.
Steven Knight‘s name is still attached to the project as the writer of the script, but I guess we’ll see what else changes between now and whenever they decide to start following through on this complicated and dark series.
