7 years after Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara and director David Fincher tried to make a Lisbeth Salander franchise happen at Sony, the company is trying again, this time with "The Girl in the Spider's Web". However, they went back to the drawing board and re-cast Lisbeth Salander and found a new director, Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Alvarez (of the Evil Dead remake), to steer this ship.
Instead of adapting the second book in Stieg Larsson's book series about the vengeful hacker, Álvarez's film skips to book four, originally penned by David Lagercrantz in 2015 (Larsson died in 2004).
It must be hard to play a character viewers have seen before. This turns out to be the cue for Lisbeth Salander to enter the game.
In the opening scene, a man has brutally beaten his wife in their home, where he thinks no one will witness.
