Sony Eyeing Alicia Vikander To Replace Rooney Mara In ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’

Nov 4, 2015

The Wrap is reporting that Sony is again returning to it’s Lisbeth Salander franchise, as they notoriously turned down David Fincher’s proposition to finish the trilogy with a hefty price tag on Steve Zillian’s script for The Girl Who Played With Fire. They’ll instead have Locke‘s Stephen Knight adapt the new novel The Girl In The Spider’s Web for the next installment.

Oddly, enough Rooney Mara who earned a an Oscar nomination for the first film won’t be returning along with director David Fincher and Dainel Craig not expected to be apart of it either.

The good part of the news is that Sony is now interested in Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Ex Machina) to replace Mara in the Salander role.

I’ll be curious if they’ll be smart and try to pursue directors like Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation), Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Blade Runner, Prisoners) and Swede Tomas Alfredson (Let The Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Snowman) to takeover for Fincher.

There’s also the question if Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will return to score the other films for them.
