Your favorite dragon-tattooed cyber-criminal is back.
This weekend, the character of Lisbeth Salander will return to the big screen this weekend in Fede Álvarez's The Girl in the Spider's Web. The thriller is a reboot of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise and is based on David Lagercrantz's novel of the same name. Emmy-winner Claire Foy will star in the flick, alongside Sverrir Gudnason, Sylvia Hoeks, and Lakeith Stanfield; the latter actor will portray Edwin Needham, an NSA agent who pursues Salander after she hacks into the agency's servers and obtains compromising information.
"My character just wants to find her to secure some very precious cargo that she's stolen, that could potentially hold in the balance the future of the world," Stanfield told Screen Rant back in June. "And so really his motivation is to stop it from getting into the wrong hands, and he assumes that it might have been in the wrong hands, having been taken by... who he finds out is Lisbeth. So he just spends his time knocking down trees, jumping over fire pits, rolling around in the snow, trying to find this woman [...] And then he finds out who it is, and then they develop a little partnership."
