Even with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo slightly underperforming by Sony’s standards (over $230 million seems fine if you ask me), the studio has been consistently reassuring us that a sequel will be coming — but we’ve just never known when exactly. We do know that Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig are both locked for the trilogy and now we’ve been most curious on David Fincher‘s involvement, or lack thereof.
Entertainment Weekly has a new update for us, which shifts the timetable of the project. It’s a bit obvious at this point that the film will not arrive in theaters next year as previously hoped, considering there’s been no movement on pre-production. But they confirm that Steven Zaillian is still hard at work, fine-tuning the script and now the plan is to hold tight on The Girl Who Played With Fire until that script is completely done.
This means 2014 would be the earliest we’d see the film and as for Fincher’s involvement, he still hasn’t said no and remains the first choice from the studio, but there is no official director attached at the moment. Sony has reportedly relaxed on putting the fast-track on this one and will simply wait things out. Hopefully this means that Fincher will jump to another project such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in between (or in my personal opinion, hand the reigns over to someone new).
Are you sad we won’t see another Lisbeth Salander film until 2014 at the earliest?
In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
