The highly anticipated follow-up to 2011's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is finally taking shape. That being said, it's going to be a whole different franchise with Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, and David Fincher all out. Instead, Claire Foy will be taking on the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web, which is actually the fourth book in the franchise. The film's director and several cast members recently appeared together for the first time at a press event in Stockholm, assuring fans that the film is indeed happening.
Joining The Crown actress is Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason, who will be replacing Craig as brooding journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Meanwhile Atlanta actor Lakeith Stanfield will be portraying Alona Casales, an NSA agent tracking Salander. Also present at the photocall were actor Stephen Merchant and director Fede Álvarez, most famous for his 2016 horror film Don't Breathe.
Though we initially had a difficult time imagining Foy as the antisocial hacker with an all-black wardrobe, her latest appearance is doing a lot to shift our perspective. The Girl in the Spider's Web is slated for release later this year on Nov. 9.
