"The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is coming back — but she'll look very different.
Sony has set a date for the sequel to the 2011 thriller: "The Girl in the Spider's Web" will open Oct. 5, 2018. But the original movie's stars, Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, will not be reprising their roles as hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist.
Instead, director Fede Alvarez is launching a global search to find an actress to play Lisbeth. Big names like Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Alicia Vikander are reportedly in the mix, too.
"The Girl in the Spider's Web" is based on the fourth novel in Stieg Larsson's series. Sony considered adapting the next two titles — "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" — but neither project worked out.
