Sony has become family to me and I can’t think of a more thrilling project to celebrate our relationship.
It became a global hit for Columbia Pictures, taking in over $230 million worldwide.
Here's what Sanford Panitch, president of Columbia Pictures, had to say in his statement."In all of contemporary literature, Lisbeth Salander is completely sui generis, probably one of the greatest female literary characters of all time in my view.
‘Modern punk defiance personified, she is unforgettable in every incarnation, truly one of the most compelling characters we’ve seen in recent years.’ The Girl In The Spider’s Web will be directed by horror director Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016’s breakout thriller Don’t Breathe, and the screenplay will be written by Alvarez, Steven Knight and Jay Basu.
It will be adapted from David Lagercrantz’s novel; Lagercrantz took over the series when Larsson passed away in 2004.
In particular, his talent and skill in creating psychological intensity will bring Lisbeth Salander back into popular movie culture with a roar..
