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 Script Getting Completely Rewritten at Last Minute

For awhile now we've known that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was getting back behind the camera for James Bond 24, the next installment of the spy franchise starring Daniel Craig as 007. The script was again coming from John Logan, writer of Skyfall, but now a report from The Daily Mail's reliable Baz Bamigboye says frequent Bond franchise writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade were brought in for a last minute rewrite. In fact, the source calls it a ...

‘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 o ...

"Bond 24" Script Scoring A Massive Overhaul?

Aug 1 2014 12:12pm CDT | Source: dark horizons

A little while back came word that regular Bond series scribes Neil Purvis and Robert Wade were brought onboard the upcoming twenty-fourth James Bond film to polish John Logan's script. At the time it seemed they were just coming back to add some humor. Now though, a report in The Daily Mail indicates their revisions were potentially far more extensive than that. Sources say writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade answered a fire-alarm call from actor Daniel Craig and director Sa ...

The Whole Truth - Keanu Reeves Takes James Bond's Job

Jun 17 2014 7:44am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Courtney Hunt picked up the Grand Jury prize at Sundance- not to mention an Academy Award nomination for screenwriting- for her debut feature Frozen River back in 2008. Her work since has been exclusively focused on the smaller screen but it still seemed an odd one when Daniel Craig pulled out of her upcoming sophomore effort The Whole Truth two months ago. The James Bond star abruptly left production a mere four days before filming was scheduled to begin, but it looks now as if ...
