Rooney Mara doesn't think The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel will happen

girl with the dragon tattoo

It seems like a long time since we were blown away by David Fincher’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. It was 2011 and I remember distinctly walking out of the theater wondering how long we would have to wait for the sequel, THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE. Time passed and a lot of the excitement surrounding the film extinguished. Sony couldn’t get it together for a sequel after the first time in the Millennium Trilogy underperformed at the box office. It’s a shame that hurts everything time I’m reminded of it.
Now Rooney Mara, star of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, says a sequel is likely a no go. Speaking with E! Online she said “I don’t think it’s going to happen, I’m sad never to do it again, but it just doesn’t seem like it’s in the cards.” Sadly she’s right about that; as mentioned, the demand for a sequel is nowhere to be found really and the talent involved has moved on. The worst part of all this is that big-budget R-rated movies are beginning to get more attention than recent years; from WOLF OF WALL STREET to KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, it’s clear a good adult movie can survive out there. A whole franchise however, that’s a different kind of risk that won’t hit every time.

Would you want to see THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE or are you over it?

Good. Rooney Mara needs less high-profile work.

another option

I definitely think the should finish up the trilogy, but I feel that there is a different option they should explore compared to two theatrical releases. My vote would be for them to combine the sequels into one project (since already the books are basically a cliffhanger ending between 2 and 3) and make like a 10 episode tv mini series from it (or however many episodes they think they need). David Fincher has connections after having made House of Cards what it is today. Maybe Netflix would

David Fincher has connections after having made House of Cards what it is today. Maybe Netflix would like to get involved too.TV is in such a good place today, that it can actually attract big name stars so it wouldn't be weird for them to keep people like Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Wouldn't even insist on Fincher directing as long as he's a producer overseeing the project. I think that would be great. A sequel series doesn't actually have to cost that much (except top billed actor salaries, I guess) since I can't recall any really major set pieces with lots of destruction and CGI etc. Sequels are basically political conspiracy / mystery / courtroom / revenge drama. I say this is the way to go.

Originals were just as good... if not better.

I loved David Fincher's version of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Having said that, the original Swedish series with Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist were just as good... if not better. In fact, when I was watching Fincher's version I felt like I was watching the original again but without sub-titles. Maybe that's why Fincher's version underperformed... not distinct enough from the original.

Loved the books & enjoyed the movies, but it kinda makes sense not to make the sequels because unlike Dragon Tattoo, Playing With Fire & Kicked The Hornets Nest are connected, so they would for sure have to make both of them. It's a shame they probably won't make them because I thought Mara did a fine job as Lisbeth & Fincher's was much more faithful.

That's ok, I don't mind. The next two sequels aren't as good. If people really want to see them, see the ones with Noomi Rapace.

I'm not unhappy that the sequels aren't happening

The American remake was unnecessary since the Swedish versions had just come out, and featured some great performances. Rooney Mara did a great job as Lisbeth Salander - just as good as Noomi Rapace IMO.

My biggest problem with the remake was that Daniel Craig didn't sell Blomkvist: he's simply too much of a leading man type to play a slightly overweight, middle-aged journalist. Michael Nyqvist was perfect, but Hollywood wasn't willing to cast more of an everyman in that role.

Fincher is too talented to be spending time working on sequels, especially sequels that would be remakes.

Good. The originals were great, but Fincher's remake literally put me to sleep.

Sounds about right

No need for a sequel, the first was not very good. It actually ranks as one of Finchers worst along with Alien 3 and The Game.

AWESOME!

Seriously. This version sucked and left out key points that made the book/series compelling. There is already a filmed trilogy with Noomi Rapice that is superior in every way. It's subtitled and done with more of an authentic feel. This attempt at telling this story felt hollow and wasn't thrilling at all compared to the original. Should never have been attempted and a sequel would only tarnish a brilliant story.

Would have liked to have seen a sequel or the whole trilogy considering the talent involved. But I'm fine with it as a one and done at this point.

I'm good, wasn't "blown away" by the first, fine either way with a sequel
