Cast photos released for THE GIRL IN THE SPIDERS WEB

Cast photos have been released for the upcoming US adaptation of the Swedish novel The Girl in the Spiders Web.

The cast and director Fede Alvarez participated in a photo call in Stockholm where production is underway.

The photos show Clair Foy’s hairstyle for Lisbeth Salander, as well as fellow cast-mates Sverrir Gudnason (Borg/McEnroe), who plays Mikael Blomkvist, Lakeith Stanfield as Alona Casales, and also Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant, Claes Bang, Christopher Convery, Synnøve Macody Lund, and Vicky Krieps.

Claire Foy takes over from Rooney Mara for the US versions, with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo directed by David Fincher. Rather than completing the original trilogy, Sony has decided to skip to the fourth book, written by David Lagercrantz. The original books were written by Stieg Larsson and released after his death.

The original Swedish version of the Millennium Trilogy starred Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth and Michael Nyqvist and Mikael Blomkvist.

The Girl in the Spiders Web will be released in the US on the 9th of November 2018.
