The studio is reportedly considering moving forward without The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher, if he is not available. The filmmaker has a number of projects on his plate, including Gone Girl and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo. While insiders claim that Sony would love to see the filmmaker return, the hiring of his Seven screenwriter does not guarantee that he will come back.
Steven Zaillian was initially hired to write The Girl Who Played with Fire, and insiders claim that Andrew Kevin Walker isn't necessarily rewriting that draft, but going in a completely new direction.
