Claire Foy could be making the transition from Queen Elizabeth to Mean Lisbeth — the star of the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown is reportedly in talks to take on the role of vengeful hacker Lisbeth Salander in Sony’s upcoming Girl With the Dragon Tattoo reboot / sequel. But Rooney Mara’s extra-dedicated portrayal of the punky protagonist (and David Fincher’s artful remake) is a tough act to follow.

It’s been six years since David Fincher brought us his adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Since then rumors have surfaced about recasting Rooney Mara‘s Lisbeth Salander, sales have skyrocketed for the Stieg Larsson book series, and last fall we got word that Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez was in talks to join the sequel. Today brings news that the long-awaited sequel is officially happening.

'Don't Breathe' Director Fede Alvarez Eyed for 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Sequel

Hard to believe now, but there was a time when The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was poised to be Hollywood’s next big franchise. David Fincher’s relentlessly bleak 2011 adaptation was a sizable hit for Sony and MGM, scored a handful of Oscar nominations (including a win for Best Film Editing and a Best Actress nod for Rooney Mara’s chilling turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander) and got copies of the novels flying off shelves faster than ever. But then Fincher moved to greener airport-novel pastures with Gone Girl, Mara ran off for an intimate but forbidden sapphic affair with Cate Blanchett (who can blame her!) in Carol, and the world continued spinning apace.

This ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Reboot Sure Is News to Rooney Mara

We recently learned that Sony is planning a semi-reboot of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, skipping the second and third books in author Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series and moving right ahead to the fourth novel, The Girl in the Spider’s Web. But the studio is reportedly planning on making the film without director David Fincher and stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. There’s just one little issue, though: Mara says as far as she knows, she’s still supposed to star in it.

After David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake you were likely expecting an adaptation of the sequel to Stieg Larsson’s book, The Girl Who Played with Fire. While it doesn’t look like Sony will be playing with fire any time soon, they do have a new Lisbeth Salander in mind.

'The Girl Who Played With Fire' Dropping Daniel Craig From the Story?

It's been a decent while since 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' premiered in theaters, launching Rooney Mara into stardom and giving Daniel Craig yet another beefy role to add to his resume. Despite the less-than-expected box office numbers, Sony was and still is planning the next sequel, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire.' So what's taking so long? Well, apparently they're weighing whether or not to cut Craig's character out of the script.

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Sequel Won't Arrive Until At Least 2014

One of the 2011's most hyped films was David Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.' An adaptation of the hit novel (and remake of the Swedish film), it was hoped that Fincher and company would be adapting the trilogy of books for the big screen. But the follow up, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire,' won't be ready until 2014 at the earliest.

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' may have been a hit with the critics but it failed to make any real noise at the box office last holiday season. The American movie adaptation of the best-selling novel, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, was considered a loss despite taking in $231 million in box office receipts worldwide. So what's the status of the planned sequel?

See Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, Version 1.0

Vulture picked up a set of alleged pre-production photos from the set of David Fincher's remake of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.' The images come courtesy of someone on Reddit, and show a more punky looking concept of Mara as hacker Lisbeth Salander. Fewer piercings and more tame makeup paint this version of Salander as slightly accessible, which makes the final choice for her appearance in the film infinitely more engaging in comparison. So what does the early version of Lisbeth look like?
