Sony has confirmed that Claire Foy — star of Netflix’s The Crown — will play the famed Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Based off the fourth installment in the Millennium book series, the film will see Foy paired up with Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez. Foy will step into the role with big shoes to fill after the brilliant performances by Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara as the character in previous adaptations. But seeing that Foy is nominated for an Emmy at this week’s Emmy Awards, fans can probably rest assured Lisbeth Salander is in good hands.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web will hack into theaters on October 5th, 2018. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
