27 May – Good news for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fans, there's a whole new TV series adaptation coming your way!
It will be a standalone spinoff series focused on the main character Lisbeth Salander, as per Variety's report.
That means it will not be a continuation to either the story from the books or the previous movie adaptations. It will instead feature a whole new story, placed within today's world in a whole new setting and, with the exception of Salander, will feature all new characters.
There is no actress attached to lead the series yet, and no word on whether any of the previous actresses who portrayed the character on the big screen will be reprising it for the new TV series.
Amazon Studios is producing the series, along with Left Bank and Sony Pictures Television. Founder and CEO of Left Bank Pictures, Andy Harries, will serve as executive produce along with Rob Bullock.
