Claire Foy & Felicity Jones the frontrunners for new Lisbeth Salander

Looks like Fede Alvarez's new take on THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO aka THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB may have found their new Lisbeth Salander in the form of Claire Foy.

Now, unless you have a girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife who is into the finer (re: boring) things in life, then you may not be familiar with Claire Foy. At the moment she is famous for starring in the Netflix original series THE CROWN, which is about the Queen and drinking tea.

Yes, it seems as if Claire Foy is Sony’s choice to replace the irreplaceable Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, who was replaced by the irreplaceable Rooney Mara as Lisbeth in David Fincher's kick-ass version.

Supposedly it is currently between Foy and ROGUE ONE's Felicity Jones to take the role. 


She is the girl with the dragon tattoo — a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker — a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it... 

Which actress would you rather see slap on the tattoos, piercings, and zero clothing of grade-A badass Lisbeth Salander? If I had to choose between the two, I'd have to say I'd go with Jane Levy. But that's just me...

THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB hits October 5, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Claire Foy co-starred in the Nic Cage horror flick SEASON OF THE WITCH as "The Girl".
