‘Andreja Pejić has been cast in The Girl In The Spider’s Web, Sony Pictures’ Millennium franchise sequel which has The Crown‘s Claire Foy in the starring role of Lizbeth Salander.
Fede Alvarez is directing the film, which is set for release October 19. This latest installment was penned by Steven Knight, Alvarez and Jay Basu, based on the global bestseller written by David Lagercrantz, who continued the legacy created by Stieg Larsson.
Amy Pascal, Elizabeth Cantillon, Scott Rudin and Yellow Bird are producing the film. Pejić is repped by Thirty Three Management.’
On a side note, it’s a super gross when publishers keep going with an authors series freshly after they’ve passed.
