Claire Foy stars as Lisbeth Salander in the first trailer for Sony’s “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.”. It is based off David Lagercrantz novel of the same name that continues the Steig Larsson’s Millenium series.
The studio replaced Rooney Mara two years ago with Foy as the Swedish computer hacker for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” sequel, seven years after the original opened. Fede Alvarez, who helmed 2016’s “Don’t Breathe” for Sony, is directing.
The film also stars Claes Bang, Sylvia Hoeks, Cameron Britton, Lakeith Stanfield, Stephen Merchant, Synnøve Macody Lund, Vicky Krieps and Andreja Pejić. Alvarez began shooting in Berlin in January. The story is based on the bestseller written by David Lagercrantz. Alvarez directed from a script he wrote with Steven Knight and Jay Basu.
“The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” produced by Sony and MGM, opens Nov. 9. Producers are Scott Rudin, Ole Søndberg, Søren Stærmose, Berna Levin, Amy Pascal, Elizabeth Cantillon and Eli Bush. Watch the trailer above.
