Rooney Mara Is Out as Lisbeth Salander, and Claire Foy Is In

We learned back in May that the buzzworthy The Crown star was being eyed to lead Sony's new take on the Steig Larsson franchise, and now Deadline confirms that Foy is set to lead The Girl in the Spider's Web. In addition to grossing more than $232 million at the worldwide box office, Mara garnered her first Oscar nomination for her role as Salander.

The new instalment of the Sony franchise will begin production in January in Berlin and Stockholm, with the film due to be release on October 19, 2018. Furthermore, the sequel/reboot will feature an entirely different cast.

"I couldn't be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander".

It's official: Claire Foy is the new Lisbeth Salander.

It was founded on campus in 1938, according to LSU's Division of Student Affairs . All fraternity activities are suspended until the cause of death is determined.

The Girl in the Spider's Web is adapting the 2015 novel of the same name written by David Lagercrantz, who picked up where Stieg Larrson left off six years after the publication of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Larsson's final book, and, like the previous two Millennium books, posthumously published.

If you're confused about the move, just know that this has pretty much nothing to do with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which hit theaters in 2011 (other than the recurring characters).

"I can't wait to bring this new story to a worldwide audience, with Claire Foy at its centre". Still, if all goes according to plan, this could be her biggest movie role yet, with some nice book sequels starting to pop up for the post-Larsson Salander story line. Unlike the Fincher/Rooney film, the novel had not been previously adapted in Swedish. A then up-and-coming Rooney Mara was selected to play the part. Production is set to begin in January in Berlin and Stockholm with a release date of October 19, 2018.
