Despite overall critical success, David Fincher's adaptation of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO performed disappointingly at the box-office, and although the sequel has found a home in the shadows, the American filmmaker has given a brief update on THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE.
Whilst on promotional duties in Sweden for GONE GIRL, Fincher was questioned about the limping project and its unclear future, he noted, "I think because Sony has already spent millions of dollars on the rights and script, it will result in something. The script we have has huge potential and I can reveal that it is extremely different from the book". The auteur is clearly approaching the sequel quite boldly, as the MILLENNIUM trilogy boasts a considerable fan base, his sharp decisions and philosophies may neglect certain avenues the book entered and therefore a large portion of the audience. Naturally, this will raise studio concerns, but it looks like Sony may have no other choice but to go forward with it.
With a back catalogue of semi-masterpieces and stylish observations, Fincher can be one-hundred percent trusted with anything he undertakes. He has numerous productions in mind for his next outing so it could be some time before we hear anything else regarding FIRE. Don't get out your calendars just yet.
