David Fincher has revealed that the sequels to one of 2011’s most anticipated films, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, will shoot in the next 12 to 18 months.
Fincher recently spoke with The New York Times and also revealed that he hasn’t committed to directing either of the other two parts of the Millenium trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest, as of yet. It is unclear if the two will shoot back to back, but I’d say that it would likely be the case. If all goes to plan we will hopefully see the other two parts by the end of 2014, at the latest.
Fincher has a couple of projects currently in development including a Cleopatra biopic with Angelina Jolie, and a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which is expected to be his next film, though nothing has been confirmed yet. Furthermore, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s writer Steve Zallian has been hired to write the second part of the trilogy, but nothing has been confirmed for the third.
Also not confirmed is the futher involvement of any of the cast. It is expected that Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig and Robin Wright, will all be back, along with some of the other supporting cast that return in the trilogy, but again, nothing has been made offical.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be in cinemas on December 21st.
