"conspiracy": Alicia Vikander in conversation for the role of Lisbeth Salander

Sony will continue the adaptation of the Swedish suspense series about Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, which began in 2011 with David Fincher’s “Verblendung”. However, with personnel changes.

Sony Pictures

In 2011, David Fincher brought to the screen “Verblendung”, the first novel in the Millennium Trilogy by Swedish author Stig Larsson. There was an Oscar and four nominations (including Rooney Mara for best actress) for the dark thriller starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in the lead roles. The sequels “Damnation” and “Forgiveness” were announced by Sony, but later kept quiet about the projects. Now there is news about the American adaptation of the Swedish suspense series, but it brings some changes.

As we recently reported, Sony will scrap the two planned sequels and focus squarely on the fourth part of the novel series, “Conspiracy.” However, it was not written by Stieg Larsson, as the author died in 2004 and David Lagercrantz continued the story of Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist after permission from Larsson’s heirs. Industry insider information The Hollywood Reporter reports that the screenplay will be adapted by Oscar-nominated author Steven Knight, who wrote the screenplay for the kitchen comedy “Im Rausch der Sterne.”

From now on, Roony Mara and Daniel Craig will not resume their duties. Meanwhile, Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina”) is scheduled to play the role of hacker Lisbeth Salander, who will star in January 2016 alongside Eddie Redmayne in the drama “The Danish Girl.” It is not yet known who is eligible for the male lead role in “Conspiracy.”
