In March, Sony officially announced that the sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had gone into production. The Major even decided on the date of the premiere of the film " The Girl Who Stuck in the Web " - it will open in theaters on October 19, 2018 .|
Then there were rumors that Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman were considered for the main role in the project, but now the portal Variety has other information about the actress who could play Lisbeth Salander . According to the source, the studio looked through dozens of applicants and opted for Felicity Jones and Claire Foy . The latter received an offer from Sony bosses.
The only stumbling block for participating in the filming of the sequel may be the British woman's busy work schedule. Rumor has it that the studio Universal also laid eyes on her, dreaming of getting Foy in Neil Armstrong's biopic, which Damien Chazelle is engaged in. Perhaps the actress will have to make a difficult choice - whether to sign up for a potential franchise or prefer a picture that can bring her more than one film award.
If Foy chooses the role of Lisbeth Salander , he will open a new stage in his career. The last year for the British woman, formerly known for "The Time of the Witches" and "Wolf Hall", was a real breakthrough - she received critical acclaim and Golden Globes for her role of Queen Elizabeth II in the historical drama "The Crown".
The hacker character Salander brought Noomi Rapace fame outside of her native Sweden, and Rooney Mara was nominated for an Oscar . The creators of the sequel, led by director Federico Alvarez, have to find a new Mikael Blomkvist , but he, according to screenwriter Stephen Knight, will play a less prominent role in the tape than in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Recall that the film, based on the novel by David Lagerkranz, tells how Salander , together with Blomkvist , will undertake to uncover a whole network of government spies and cybercriminals.
