We have seen many impressive novels being adapted for the big screen over the years and, while some have gone on to be considered a huge success, there are others that have been considered flops. With that said, there are always going to be disappointed people, as there are always going to be scenes from the book which do not make the movie, much to the disappointment of some fans.
When it was announced that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie was getting made, fans of the novel were very excited but, when the movie was released in 2011, there were many disgruntled fans and plans for the sequel The Girl Who Played with Fire was put on hold. However, director David Fincher has opened up about the project, insisting that it will happen in the future.
Fincher was chatting to the guys over at the Swedish movie website Afton Bladet (translations via Film Divider), when he told them, "I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."
With fans of books being very unhappy with movies messing with the source material, there are going to be many disappointed fans to learn that The Girl Who Played with Fire is going to be "extremely different from the book." While we are big fans of the books and would love to see all three of them adapted for the big screen, we are unsure about this idea, although we are willing to wait and see what they come up with.
What do you think about this?
