Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Sequel Still on Track, Despite Soft Opening
The David Fincher adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo might be well regarded, with an 85-percent freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that doesn’t mean people have been rushing to see the film since its December 25 release. In fact, the $90 million dollar movie has only raked in about $60 million so far, according to Box Office Mojo estimates.
However, Sony remains dedicated to adapting at least the next book in Larsson’s Millennium series, Entertainment Weekly reports. EW’s inside source said the film “continues to do strong business and nothing has changed with respect to development of the next book.” Fincher has yet to decide if he’ll return for the sequel, although stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are signed on for the intended trilogy.
