Rooney Mara, who played the lead role in the US adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, has stated that she is hopeful that the sequel to the first movie will still make it to theaters. The fate of the film adaptation of The Girl Who Played With Fire is in danger due to the paltry earnings of its precursor brought in from the box office.
"I hope that they make the second one. I’m just not sure when they’re going to. I mean, I hope they make it soon because I’m not getting any younger. The second one is very physical, so hopefully they’ll be making it sooner rather than later," Mara informed MTV.
It had been previously rumored that screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker had signed on to adapt the script, but it remains to be seen whether David Fincher will once again take the lead and direct should the project get the green light.
There also seems to be some uncertainty as to whether or not Daniel Craig would even return to reprise his role in the sequel. There have been reports that he is in the middle of a pay dispute that could ultimately bar the actor from returning.
I personally thought that this film was one of the best book-turn-movies I’ve ever witnessed. I thought they stayed true to the book and the characters, and that it was cast almost flawlessly. I suppose my opinion was not shared by the majority!
