By all accounts, the American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a big success upon its release in 2011. It pulled in over $200 million at the worldwide box office and received strong reviews, particularly for the outstanding performance by Rooney Mara. It received five Oscar nominations—including Best Actress for Mara—and won for Best Film Editing. The source material for its two sequels already exists. So why haven’t they been made, or even really been talked about?

Director David Fincher doesn’t want fans to give up hope. He recently told the Swedish website Afton Bladet that “I think because (Sony) already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something. The script that we now have has huge potential. I can reveal that it is extremely different from the book.”

Um, hasn’t he been saying the same thing about Gone Girl? This all kind of seems like a tactic to drum up interest in the movie without actually changing anything but superficial elements of the plot. But if it gets the movie made, the end sort of justifies the means, right?
