According to Sony Pictures, actress Claire Foy ("The Crown") will play 'Lisbeth Salander', the lead character in "The Girl in the Spider's Web", to be directed by Fede Alvarez ("Don't Breathe"), that will start shooting January 2018 in Berlin, targeting an October 19, 2018 release:


"...'Frans Balder', a computer scientist, returns to Sweden, abandoning a prestigious job with a 'Silicon Valley' company called 'Solifon', to take custody of his autistic son 'August'.



"Balder is informed by law enforcement he is in danger from the criminal organization 'Spider Society', but he ignores their warnings, preferring to focus on his neglected son.




"Meanwhile, 'Mikael Blomkvist' feels he is stuck in a rut. In the year since 'Millenium' magazine's scoop on 'The Section', the publication has stagnated and is in danger of losing creative control to outside investors.



"A former associate, 'Linus Brandell', relates Balder's tumultuous history, but Blomkvist is bored until Brandell mentions Balder was assisted by 'Lisbeth Salander'...



"...who spurred by a childhood memory is actively investigating the Spider Society..."
