Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel might happen without Craig
According to THR, plans for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" sequel are still in place, even though director David Fincher is circling an adaptation of "Gone Girl" and star Daniel Craig may have priced himself out of appearing.
That bit of news is most shocking: Craig, who starred as journalist Mikael Blomkvist in "Dragon Tattoo," wants a raise for the sequel after his box-office performance as James Bond in "Skyfall." Per THR, Sony isn't willing to give him a big bump. (Sony also released "Skyfall.") Should negotiations go south, the idea is that Blomkvist could be written out of the sequel, leaving Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander to star.
Despite some putting "Dragon Tattoo" in the loss column, Sony has held firm on its plans to continue the trilogy. “[Dragon Tattoo] continues to do strong business and nothing has changed with respect to development of the next book,” Sony told EW last year.
Whether Fincher returns, however, is up for debate.
So blame Skyfall's huge success if we never see the US's take on the Dragon sequel or we get something very different from the books. Let's see if Sony calls Craig's bluff.
