Despite lukewarm reception, Sony says Dragon Tattoo sequel still happening

01.03.2012

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO came and didn't exactly light the movie-going world aflame. Since opening on December 21, the film has brought in only $60 million, which doesn't sound all too bad, but the film cost over $90 million and the original Swedish movie brought in over $104 million worldwide. Maybe audiences were looking for less anal rape this Christmas season?

But fear not Lisbeth fans: Sony Pictures says that despite the perception that DRAGON TATTOO has underperformed, they're still moving forward with the sequel, THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE. A rep for the studios told Entertainment Weekly that "development continues" on the second film in the trilogy and that writer Steven Zaillian is currently working on the script. "Nothing has changed with respect to development of the next book," a rep for Sony says.

The sequel was originally set for a December, 2013 release and both Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are contractually committed to reprising their roles. Not so committed is David Fincher. The director has been prepping 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA at Disney and hasn't yet decided whether he'd like to return.

My gut tells me Fincher will pass on any sequels but stick around in some kind of advisory role. Perhaps he'll bring on one of his friends like Mark Romanek (who'd make a nice fit) to work on future films. Frankly, I think it was a nice enough experiment but would advise Sony, Mara, Craig, et al. to cut their losses and move on.

Everyone stop arguing

Here are the facts. The books, and both movies don't have amazing story lines. Nothing I haven't seen before, read before, or heard before. Okay, so let's not get all defensive over a film that is just okay.

The acting is perfectly awesome, and yes it looks fantastic and has great moments but seriously? It's basically Silence of the Lambs and Irreversible mixed together with Zodiac. Rape is a touchy subject, but why does everyone praise a movie for it's rape scenes???

After watching the re-make I immediately went back home to watch the original again to see why I didn't enjoy it as a whole. What I realized was the original film just covers the most important parts in the book, that explain things fully in a cohesive way. It's way more faithful to the book, it even shows the courtroom scene! Why was that taken out?!? What's wrong with explaining backstory now? Is that considered spoon-feeding it to audiences as well?

@PhuckinTom

The last 15-20 minutes was lackluster because we develop a relationship with Weinstrom's character through the.....COURTROOM SCENE!

Taking out a reason for me to want that kind of revenge, and expecting me to be excited at the end when he gets the guy is kinda lame.

Not Fincher's most polished film, but it fooled alot of people with the visuals.

first off why dont you go ahead and name some of the films books or scripts youve read or seen that even clolosely resemble the gwtdt series(the books i mean) i dont what appeals to you but an emo goddess hacker shunned by all of society and basically fucked over her whole life given a chance to stick it back to everyone who ever fucked her not to mention the symbolism in the second and third books connected to not only present political matters(this book came out almost 10 years ago btw) and

i love the books and the movies and finchers whole style of directing. yeah it was un-necessary given the quality of the original swedish film AND the quality of the books but hey American audiences obviously have a problem with reading these days so here we are.

Silence of the lambs? are you kidding me? people dont praise a movie for their rape scenes but they do praise them for having the bravery to stay true to source material not caring about how much money it makes.

i dont really see what your getting at because of the pathetic use of the english language you employ. maybe you should go back to watching tranformers or whatever shit you dont have to read from a screen.

ps.....you cant put forward an argument in an opening paragraph and then totally contradict yourself 5 sentences later its called an infinite paradox, you know where you attack and defend with the same statement? the books are over 500 pages long each i dont think someone over your limited intelligence could manage them to be fair. ''the acting is perfectly awesome'' it looks fantastic'' has great moments'' yeah sounds like you hated it justifiably.

godfather took 7 hours of film to cover a 400 page book. in case you didnt know typical film script is 90 pages long because one page constitutes around 1 minute of film time so its hard to make one film from 550 pages+...both films are great adaptations...they couldnt have been done any better in my opinion

So your saying this movie is worth arguing over because it's about "an emo goddess hacker shunned by all of society and basically fucked over her whole life given a chance to stick it back to everyone who ever fucked her"?

It's a murder mystery, with a slight twist. My point is, this re-make was a slight waste of time if it weren't for Rooney Mara's performance.

If your such a fan of the books, then why would you be upset at me for saying the re-make isn't as good? What do you care, if

seems most are defending the article itself for its attempt at sarcasm & ridiculing those who like the books a & movies. The last few sentences are totally inappropriate for an article. I believe the ending was changed because IMO it was way too over the top & would have made the character seem desperate & another character seem like a heartless bastard. So in turn it was Fincher & Zaillian's attempt to go for a happier ending.

Ha "cut their losses"

This article is borderline idiotic. I think Fincher and the cast did a great job, and not only have I seen the original trilogy, but I've read all of the books. The Swedish version was great, but I am all for anything medium that brings more attention to this source material in the US. Anyone with some sense should be able to draw the conclusion that the 2nd film will do even better in the box office after the Oscar buzz and video sales of the first. The final 15-20 minutes, after the climax,

The final 15-20 minutes, after the climax, was the only part that I felt was lackluster, although it is very important in setting up the rest of the trilogy. That particular section just seems difficult to portray to the audience in an engaging way.

Potential spoiler:

Also, as bluemookie alluded to, had Fincher followed the original rape scene from the book more closely, Lisbeth's actions would have been more justified. The way her rape was portrayed in this film was not even close to how it was written in the book. You would think that the MPAA would have a more difficult time accepting such a violent portrayal of a man being raped instead of a woman, so I'm unsure why the scenes were presented in the way they were.

I may be in the minority, but I was actually looking for MORE anal rape. The rape scene in the book made her actions more justifiable. I'm not saying that rape is ever justifiable, but when you want anal sex and the other person doesn't, what are you going to do? NOT rape them? That's just crazy talk...

Although i didnt think it was necessary as captaindeadman says it was made to cater for the ignorant which lets face it is a huuuuuuuge portion of western audiences. Even my friends are quick to say ''fuck that'' if a movie has subtitles. it is ignorant yeah but its kind of the fault of society for not pushing books on us rather than movies. i guess you cant advertise in books as well as you can in movies.

I love the original, disliked the remake.

I'm all for a sequel as long as they don't invent their own new "fresh" ending like they did in the current one. Also, maybe one phrase in Swedish with accompanied subtitles would be nice—I find it hard to believe no one in Sweden speaks the native language.
Unlike most American audiences, I don't mind subtitles; some of the best films were not made in America. Regurgitated remakes like this just pander to the ignorant. Keep it up guys, maybe you can start getting filmmakers to film

Glad to see the Schmoes striking back

JOBLO should read our feed back, & look at everyone sticking up for this film (I'm glad to see). This film was done very well, its been the best book to film adaptation I've seen in some time. After the Oscars I'm sure people will have an urge to see it. Just as with the kings speech (not comparing movies, just scenarios). I'm glad Sony, Craig, and Mara are returning, & hope Fincher does too

Stop it, Joblo!

Cut their losses? Seriously, Mike, it has not even opened internationally yet. I think the buzz on the film will continue to grow even when it hits DVD. That will bring in a bigger audience than the first one.

Fact: Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has made $72 million + worldwide since opening 13 days ago (I like how you mention the original making $104 worldwide, but not the extra 12 mil that the 2011 version made.
Fact: Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has garnered 86 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Fiction: This movie has gotten a lukewarm response. The fact is, this is an R film, so the largest demographic that pumps up movies at box offices (children and teenagers) can't get into the film.

It is truly sad how biased this site is becoming, ya praise & milk movies like Drive & Warrior down the throats of readers. Finally saw Warrior & although its good with decent acting, it's not as great as its described on here. It seems like this site wasn't even all for a movie like TGWTDT & only praises movies the staff in general likes.

Now Dragon tattoo was an excellent movie whether it scores at the box office. It's more faithful to the book than even the swedish movie & even

Now Dragon tattoo was an excellent movie whether it scores at the box office. It's more faithful to the book than even the swedish movie & even though the ending was changed & rightfully so, I was surprised how faithful it was to the book & how they got the characters down to a T. Seems though people here @ joblo mock people who enjoy these types of films & demean those who do not always enjoy the movies they praise. I noticed that this past year & i just don't understand it.

As for completing the trilogy I think it needs to happen regardless of how the movies perform at the box office. The last 2 books are more connected & I still need to read them. I have heard again the swedish films changed the last 2 even more than the 1st. I also would hope Fincher comes back as director because he is the best director suited for this type of material & won't dumb them down, especially if it sticks to being just as faithful as his version of Dragon Tattoo. I just can't think of any other director out there who can pull it off.

I think one thing that is being lost in this is how different the first book is from the second two. 'Dragon Tattoo' is a murder mystery; 'Fire' and 'Hornet's Nest' are more political thrillers. I really liked how Fincher did the murder mystery, but if another director does the sequel, the change in style/genre is such that they could still be good. Ultimately, what really stood out to me about the American version was definitely how spectacular the performances were all around and it would

Good - looking forward to the sequels.

I also can't wait until we have the box office disappointment down to the minute, as soon as something opens - 'Oh Shit! It only made 28,254 dollars in the first 60 seconds, those poor saps wasted their time making this.'

Hav epeople lost their perception of success and failure?!

This film is doing tremendous. Just because some bitter critics dislike the film and it's first weekend was 'soft' doesn't mean it should be overlooked as a failure. The film made 19 million on its second weekend! Imagine it makes the same on it's third weekend in the US. Most films drop in their box office each week. This film is growing and not to many the glowing praise Rooney Mara is getting.
Cut who's losses? As far as I know nobody is at a loss. Maybe not going to be Oscar heavy but it's

It certainly won't take off with DVD sales.
No need to cut any losses no career damage will be done by more pointless remakes and "Americanizations". It's standard practice now.
Go on Sony... waste some more money.
Fincher definitely won't be back he knew this was a mistake before he even finished signing the contract.

And as far as the "cut their losses" comment. Yes, Mara should cut her losses for the role that has gotten her a Golden Globe Nomination and most likely an Oscar nom too. Yup, I'm sure this will be the black spot on her resumé.

I'm not sure the international numbers are going to be that stellar either considering the original just came out a couple of years ago. Are the same people who watched the movie the first time around want to sit and watch the same movie again, in English? I don't.

Regardless, the movie will likely end up over $100 million, rated R, and 2 hrs. and 40 minutes long. I don't see the problem. Fincher films have long tails on home video.

Granted, overseas box office is not currently being considered, but there are several reasons why this is considered less successful than "The Social Network". A) Budgets- this one (including marketing) is a little north of $90 million, whereas "Social Network" was a little north of $40 million. B) Expectations- "GWTDT" has a massive worldwide fanbase thanks to the books and the Swedish films. That fanbase isn't showing up like the studios helped. C) Awards consideration- by this time "SN" was

C) Awards consideration- by this time "SN" was a major frontrunner, "GWTDT" isn't faring as nicely there. So yeah, all things considered, this isn't doing as well as anyone was hoping. I do think if it seemed to be more of an awards contender, the underperforming (for lack of a better word) box office wouldn't seem like such an issue.

Yea..box office numbers bad?

I think you forget that this book is huge worldwide and itll prob end up with a little north of 100 mil here and another 100-175 internationally. Plus DVD sales..

Also, this is just setting up a new movie fan base that will now goto the second movie on top of the book readers.

Def not a flop.
