The Girl In The Spider’s Web To Get Movie Adaptation

Author David Lagercrantz is set to have his sequel to Stieg Larrson’s Millenium book series The Girl in the Spider’s Web made into a film.

Consisting of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, Larrson’s trilogy was previously adapted for film in his native Sweden. The first installment of the series was also made into an English-language movie by Academy Award-winning director David Fincher:

No director has been officially announced for the project, but Don’t Breathe‘s Fede Alvarez has been floated as a possible contender:

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it…

We’ll have the full interview with Alvarez and his longtime producer and co-writer Rodo Sayagues up a little closer to Don’t Breathe‘s home release on November 29, but the pair did confirm that they’re currently looking at ways to make Spider’s Web something uniquely theirs.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
