Not too long ago, the outlet Omega Underground revealed that The Girl in the Spider’s Web – which is the upcoming sequel/reboot to David Fincher’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – would start filming in Eastern Europe in January.

Now the outlet has gotten a lot more specific with their details. According to them, the film is set to begin shooting on January 15, 2018. Additionally, the film is set to shoot in Berlin, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden.

Set to direct this reboot is none other than Don’t Breathe helmer Fede Alvarez. With this being a new take on the Millennium Series, the director has gone on to recast all of the key roles from David Fincher’s adaptation.

Replacing Rooney Mara as the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander is The Crown star Claire Foy. Replacing Daniel Craig as the investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist is Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason. Also joining the main cast are Blade Runner 2049’s Sylvia Hoeks and Mindhunter star Cameron Britton.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is based on the novel of the same name by author David Lagercrantz, who took over writing duties on the franchise after author Stieg Larsson passed away prior to the publication of the first three books. They will be looking to do a quick turnaround with this film, aiming for a December 2018 release date. Given that these aren’t visual effects extravaganza films, we think that gives them more than enough time to make it happen.
