    The Girl in the Spider’s Web
    Director: Fede Alvarez (“Don’t Breathe,” “Evil Dead”)
    Cast: Claire Foy, Cameron Britton, Sylvia Hoeks, Sverrir Gudnason
    Details: While David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” film adaptation was definitely more polished and cinematic than its Swedish language predecessor, it came at a cost – a $90 million budget. That meant the film had to perform exceptionally well at the box-office to guarantee further entries and it simply didn’t. As a result Sony has skipped the two-part second and third books in favour of the standalone fourth one which also serves as a minor reboot.

    Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig are out, replaced by “The Crown” star Claire Foy as hacker Lisbeth Salander and “Borg and McEnroe” star Sverrir Gudnason as Mikael Blomqvist. Utilising the first book in the series NOT from Stieg Larsson, the story has the pair looking into a web of spies, cybercriminals and corrupt government officials. The most interesting change here is Alvarez as the director as he isn’t afraid to go very dark, and can do so with a limited budget and deliver a solid film in the process.

    I'm disappointed that we won't get to see the 2nd and 3rd books. I haven't bothered with the 4th book because it's from a different writer and all the reviews I've read suggest that it isn't as good as the originals.
