Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Coming Dec 2011, Sequels?
The NYTimes has finally confirmed that David Fincher will direct the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The film will be coming to theaters in Dec 2011. Brad Pitt and Carey Mulligan have been rumored for the lead roles. The only issue is that they'll have to be open to return for two more films.
Speaking of sequels the same article has confirmed that if the studio moves forward with more movies they'll be shot back to back. Yet there is no word if Fincher will return for the two films. It's expected they won't go into production until 2012-2013 so we'll have plenty of time to wait and see what happens. Fincher apparently has on option to direct the second film and I'm sure he would be able to shot them both relatively cheap and fast. The two books which could become sequels include The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest and The Girl Who Played With Fire.
