There were quite a few question marks over the possibility of The Girl Who Played With Fire being made following the less than impressive worldwide box office gross of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. However, Sony have always insisted that they were going to go ahead with the sequel and it seems that they are sticking to their word.
While The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo did not excel at the box office, it did still manage to make over $232m and will continue to bring money to Sony. With that said, it is no real surprise that they are pushing forward with The Girl Who Played With Fire.
However, it was originally planned that The Girl Who Played With Fire would hit the big screen in 2013 but it is looking more likely to be 2014. Steven Zaillian has been brought in to pen the screenplay for The Girl Who Played With Fire and he is not one to be rushed on a script.
Meanwhile Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are both set to return for the movie but a new director will be brought on board for the second instalment of the Steig Larsson trilogy, as David Fincher is highly unlikely to helm the sequel.
