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