Despite the weak box-office performance of the U.S. remake of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" so far, the sequel, "The Girl Who Played With Fire," is moving forward, a Sony spokesperson has confirmed to TheWrap.
Steven Zaillian, who also wrote and executive produced "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," is writing the screenplay for the next U.S. film based on Swedish author Stieg Larsson's "Millennium" series.
While David Fincher has not signed on for "Fire," the Sony representative said the company wants him to direct the sequel. Fincher previously saidthat he would want to shoot the sequels -- "Fire" and " The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" -- back to back, if he were to sign on for the final two installments.
