Back in January, Sony reps revealed that their sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, is still in the works, with Steven Zaillian writing the script. The studio was planning on a late 2013 release, although that is not the case anymore.
Steven Zaillian is still working on the script, and nothing will move ahead until they have the screenplay locked in. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher remains the top choice to make this follow-up, although no deals are in place yet. Insiders claim that Sony isn't in any rush to push this sequel along quickly.
Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara have deals in place to return as Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo took in $233 million worldwide, from a $90 million production budget.
