Sony Want Revamped Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequel Rolling By Years End

I'd imagine the two-for-one scheduling would be a point in the negotiations.Steve Zaillian has already written a draft for The Girl Who Played With Fire, and he's apparently overhauled the novel's structure to bring Lisbeth Salander front and centre.Despite the title, she's fairly absent in the novel, and that's maybe not such a saleable proposition[...]

Though the image is credited to Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the accompanying article seems to suggest Fincher was rather hands-on:“I think we need more blood,” Fincher said as he stared at Mara’s outstretched hands.
