- THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE
Director David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo wasn’t quite the smashing sensation that everybody thought it might be, when it released in December. But it would seem that its global revenue of $232 million was enough to justify an adaptation of author Steig Larsson’s sequel The Girl who Played with Fire, but development on the film, seems to be moving at quite the slow pace.
Fincher has yet to officially attach himself as the director of Fire, however, in a recent interview Fincher revealed that he’s still very much mulling over a return to the world of Lisbeth Salander.
In an interview with The Art of Title (via The Playlist), Fincher was asked what he’s doing next:
“Well, [I’m] trying to figure out a sequel to Dragon Tattoo. We’ve got to be able to make it our own thing.”

The director is currently busy working on the 2013 Netflix series House of Cards, for which he directed the first two episodes. Though initially Fincher and Co. expressed interest in filming the two Dragon Tattoo sequels back-to-back, the mixed reception to the first film looks to have altered their plans.
Many had pegged the big-budget 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake as Fincher’s next feature film, but Disney may have second thoughts about green lighting a large-scale, CG-heavy epic after the flop, John Carter.
I for one loved the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and when the sequel finally does make its way to the big screen, ill be first inline! So let me know what you think and comment below.
