'The Crown' Star Claire Foy Is Your New Lisbeth Salander

'The Crown' Star Claire Foy Is Your New Lisbeth Salander”

"The Crown" breakout Claire Foy has officially been chosen to step into the role of Stieg Larsson iconic computer hacker for the upcoming "The Girl in the Spider's Web" adaptation.

Rooney previously was Oscar-nominated for her work as Lisbeth in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. David Lagencrantz took over as the new author starting with the fourth installment, The Girl in the Spider's Web.

The biggest mystery about the upcoming sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has been solved. In a statement given about the casting Alvarez said, "I couldn't be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander", he said.

The role of Lisbeth will be a leap into movie stardom, but in January, Foy won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth, and, later that month, she won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama. Instead, Sony Pictures has made a decision to push forward with The Girl in the Spider's Web, an adaptation of the fourth novel in the Millennium series by David Lagercrantz, directed by Fede Alvarez (Don't Breathe). The new film is based on the novel by David Lagercrantz, who took over the Millennium Series after Larsson's death-Larsson only wrote the first three books before he unexpectedly passed away, but the franchise and character of Lisbeth Salander has continued.

It's official: Claire Foy is the new Lisbeth Salander. Production is set to begin in January in Berlin and Stockholm with a release date of October 19, 2018. Then, Craig will soon dive into his final go-around as James Bond in Bond 25 and Mara has no shortage of films on her plate.

The Girl in the Spider's Web is also the first in the best-selling series to be produced into an English-language film in its initial adaptation, with the previous installments originated as Swedish-language films. But, we'll just have to wait and see what happens when Spider's Web hits theaters next October.
