Screenwriter hired for Girl Who Played with Fire

Jul 18 2013, 10:40am CDT | by

Andrew Kevin Walker has been hired to write 'The Girl Who Played with Fire'.

Sony Pictures is moving forward with an English-language sequel to its blockbuster 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' adaptation by hiring the 'Se7en' screenwriter to write a new script, however, it's not known whether director David Fincher will return for the follow-up.

The sequel seemingly came to a standstill following the release of the original film - which starred Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig - in December 2011 due to the director's busy schedule, but producers are now contemplating going ahead with a second film with or without him, according to Indiewire.com.

While Sony is eager to re-team with Fincher, the director is busy preparing for his next movie, 'Gone Girl', which is also a book adaptation based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel.

Walker - who worked with Fincher on 'Se7en' - is expected to work on a new script, despite 'Dragon Tattoo' screenwriter Steve Zaillian penning a script of his own for Sony, following his work on the first film.

The scribe is expected to take the film in a different direction and may not be as faithful to Stieg Larrson's 'Girl Who Played with Fire' book as Zaillian was to the first novel in the hit Swedish book trilogy.

Both Mara and Craig - who respectively played private investigator Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist - signed on for two sequels when they made the first film.

It's thought there may be a small window of opportunity for the two stars to come together for the sequel in early 2014 before Craig films the next James Bond film.

James Bond 24: Looking for “Imposing Henchman”

Aug 25 2014 9:43am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

As James Bond 24 gears up to start filming this fall, they appear to be looking for a bit of brut force for their villain. Where Javier Bardem was enough to menace Daniel Craig when you watch Skyfall online, Sam Mendes and company are looking to up the ante for their follow-up with not only a villain to give Bond fits, but a sidekick for him or her who will do some damage. They are reportedly looking for someone who is at least six-foot two-inches tall an ...

Sam Mendes Wants Léa Seydoux for BOND 24

The folks behind Bond 24 had a tough time with that script.  Even though Neal Purvis and Robert Wade opted out of the 24th installment after working on The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall, back in June, news broke that the duo would actually return to do some work on John Logan’s Bond 24 script, specifically stepping to give it some “punch.”  However, it turns out, giving it a little punch might have been a bit of an under ...

‘Bond 24′ Getting Hefty Rewrite From Neil Purvis and Robert Wade

Aug 1 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Bond 24 will bring Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes back into the world of globe-trotting espionage, but the screenwriting credit may not be what we were expecting it to be. While John Logan also made the leap back into Bond after Skyfall, the script turned in may be getting more of a work-over than previously suggested. Rewrites on big movies happen all the time, and weeks ago it was reported that Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, who have worked on many Bond fil ...
